Sunday Afternoon Music: Shakey Graves – “Late July”

Shakey GravesI should start by saying I don’t like country music. I really, really don’t.  But I love bluegrass, and even some alt-country. Don’t ask what the difference is – I just know that at some point there is a line that gets crossed and what could have been really soulful, strong, lyrically-powerful music becomes… too twangy.

So Shakey Graves (aka Alejandro Rose-Garcia) is most definitely not country music.  But his music is what I think it used to be: folksy, energetic, and engaging. Imagine giving Johnny Cash an energy drink and an electric guitar. It’s hard not to pay attention.

You can find more Shakey Graves on his Facebook or Bandcamp pages.
