In 2005, Providence, RI’s Lame Drivers secretly released The Captain Amazing EP – five hook-filled and fuzzed out songs conceived in a New Jersey basement, developed in Providence, and messily birthed onto a handful of CD-Rs. Then they went on hiatus. Now they’re back with this reissue of their debut EP plus five bonus tracks. Lame Drivers make DIY punk-informed pop rock inspired by the unpredictable eclecticism of freeform radio. Such classic, vital tunes are hard to come by these days. Not far removed from GBV, Replacements, Hüsker Dü, The Zeros, Elvis Costello, The Capstan Shafts.

From the slow settling dust of PURPLE IVY SHADOWS comes THE ‘MERICANS, a Rhode island band based around the songs of Chris Daltry. Their first record, ‘MERICAN RECORDINGS, was recorded at home, on borrowed recording equipment on the west side of Providence. The sounds of this first record are the foundation of what Daltry’s songs are all about – rootsy folky moody pop songs about another way of seeing things. Includes appearances by Joel Thibodeau of Death Vessel and String Builder, former PURPLE IVY SHADOWS member Will Rice and Margie Wienk on upright bass. Fans of Gillian Welch, Son Volt, Varnaline, Purple Ivy Shadows, The Feelies, CCR, Neko Case and Johnny Cash’s American Recordings, step right up.
