DR COUNTRY features longtime Louisville veteran Darren Rappa and Caitlin Kannapell, with a rotating cast of characters and comrades playing his unique style of bent country tunes. Rappa, who played in such amazing Louisville bands as Verktum and King Kong, has a unique voice and presence, and his songs in DR COUNTRY will have you alternately weeping and laughing out loud, asking for more.
James Jackson Toth has been playing and recording (and releasing) music for over a decade, most notably as leader of the now-defunct New York-based collective Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice. After a solo album in 2007 on Rykodisc, he continues under the name WAND with new releases on both Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! label and the Mad Monk label. Abandoning the psychedelic wail of WW&VV for a starker, more direct songwriting style, WAND’s most recent tunes are harrowing and hellaciously good.
New York’s LITTLE GOLD presents mellow country rock born from years of playing basement punk shows. Christian DeRoeck spent a good chunk of the past decade leaning on the whammy bar in Meneguar, and was one of the two founding songwriters in Woods. Now he joins up with viola/violin player K. Dylan Edrich (of K. Records’ Chain and the Gang), and drummer Patty Conway, and spins some tunes that are a bit more down home than his previous work, but still as ragged and catchy as ever. Replete with killer 12-string leads and psychedelic autoharp musings.
