The Aggrolites – Rugged Road
Order the new album from The Aggrolites on LP today! Rugged Road features 10 original tracks recorded at Young Cub headquarters in Boston. The album was engineered and mixed by Craig DubFader Welsch (John Brown’s Body, 10 ft Ganja Plant, Slightly Stoopid), and the all-analog session is , as our very own Chris Castro reviewed, a continuation of the band’s excavation deeper and deeper into the Studio One archives.
The Rugged Road 12” records are pressed on gorgeous clear red vinyl, and are limited to 1000 copies. These are already going fast- don’t miss adding this gem to your collection. Order your copy now, or pre-order the physical CD that will be available 3/22/2011. You can Pre-Order the LP by clicking HERE or download it via iTunes by clicking HERE

G. Love – Fixin’ to Die
Like a classic novel it all starts at a chance meeting one rainy, fall night in Boston, when fellow torchbearers of new roots Americana, Seth and Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers invite Garret Dutton aka G. Love onto their tour bus after a gig to share their love of back road blues. This mutual affinity leads to G. Love sharing the stage with The Avett Brothers at a summer music festival both are playing. The collaboration, sounding so natural and right, deepens, so much so, eventually G. Love asks Scott and Seth Avett to not only play on his new record, he asks them to produce it as well.
You can now pick up this album anywhere music is sold!
