Three exciting new tracks right on the line of Americana and country music

Lindsay Everly – “Locomotive Love”
-I honestly can’t believe how good this song is. The railroad trope is one that goes all the way back to the origins of country music with Jimmie Rogers himself. That said, the modern take on it from Everly still packs a powerful punch. The vocal quality is outstanding on this track. There’s an expressive emotionalism in the lyrics that come across as inspiring and motivating. The forward moment moves full speed through the track, making for an adventurous and engaging listening experience.

B. Knox – “Little Wars”
-From the first time I heard this song, I knew that it was going to be a new favorite in Americana. B. Knox has an expressive southern rock, blues-infused flavor that feels familiar. There’s a bit of a 400 Unit style here for sure. But even earlier than those guys, I couldn’t help but feel a bit of a Skynyrd vibe to the sound on “Little Wars.” It’s a sound that reminds me of the kind of rock-meets-country style of the 80s and early 90s. If you’re looking for a new track to put on rotation in your workshop or at the grill, give these guys a shot.

Kyle Joshua Trask – “Moving on”
-There’s a syncopated almost-rock style to this song that works really well. At first blush, most listeners wouldn’t call this purely a country song. That said, it has a pop rock flavor to it that works really well in the catch-all genre of Americana. Trask has a fantastic vocal that is unwavering and precise throughout this recording. The electric guitar provides some highlights and the vocal harmonies in the background give it that classic rock vibe. It’s a breakup song appropriately rooted in emotion and the energy of moving on.
