Hello Pirate, First off, let me just say what huge fans we are of your blog, Wrath of the Grapevine. You have a great taste in and knowledge of music and you do an incredible job sharing these things. I saw recently that you put up a post from a new blues band called the black oil brothers. Anyway that brings me to the point of this note. We wanted to send you a track from our album and see if you liked it and would maybe want to post it on your blog. We are three piece, sometimes 4 piece acoustic blues/gospel/ragtime/country whathaveyou band out of New York City, called The Dough Rollers, however we are all in Los Angeles playing a residency for the summer. If you like our music please let us know and maybe we could send you some more songs. This one we’re sending you is Operator Blues. You can also hear more tunes at http://www.myspace.com/malcolmandjack. Like I said, if you’re into it drop us a line back, if not, let us know anyway. Thanks for your time. Cheers and thanks for all the great music, Jack Byrne and Malcolm Ford
Thanks guys! New weird America, for sure. I like how comfortably you cross genres, from fingerpicking country blues to jugband to old-time to delta blues and back! And the raw, ragged quality of your delivery certainly suits the music and stays true to the old styles.
