Phoenix's ornery honky-tonk heroes The Suicide Kings have relocated to Nashville, home of their record label, Blue Plate Music, as they ready their newest album.
Set for an August release, the record is streaming on the band's Web site (or just listen below), and what's more, sign up for their mailing list and you'll get an email link for a free download of the song "Bottle and a Gun."
I'd been a fan of the band (formerly the Revenants) for years, but never got to see them play live until March, and it was a hell of a show.
Next up is news that Calexico is going into space. Not Joey and John and the rest, that takes training and whatnot. But their music, specifically "Crystal Frontier," will be played as the astronaut's wake up Friday. Apparently Cmdr. Mark Kelly is a big fan and selected the song.
