South Rail Presents: Top 20 Albums of 2011

January 3, 2012 2 Comments

Happy New Year! What a way to start-off 2012 then to reflect on all the great music 2011 had to offer. So much in fact that we decided to make our Top 15 list and Top 20!

As always, next to each album title is a “Purchase from he artist or label” link, which takes you directly to the best possible way to purchase each album… directly from the band! If the artist doesn’t sell directly, the link will take you to their label. Support the arts, and keep these great musicians’ careers in-check for 2012!



Those Darlins: ‘Screws Get Loose’
Buy directly from the band

On their debut, selt-titled LP, Those Darlins delivered to the world a fantastic album smothered and covered in deep-country roots blended with that perfect dosage of rock n’ roll. For the band’s sophomore effort, ‘Screws Get Loose,’ they show us that they’re a band who is here to stay, offering us nothing but growth, sustainability and song writing gold. If you don’t know of this Nashville 4-piece yet, they are soon to be a house-hold name and this LP is the proof.



Middle Brother: ‘Middle Brother’
Buy directly from the label

So, what do you get when you put three great up-and-coming band front-men and songwriters into the studio? One hell of an album! Add a dash of Corndawg and call it a classic.



Hunx & His Punx ‘Too Young To Be In Love’
Buy directly from the label

Shannon Shaw of Shannon of the Clams + Seth Bogart (aka Hunx) are the perfect song writing team! Even thought Hunx and his Punx’s Punkettes played their last show this Fall due to the band’s other 2 members leaving this fall and with Hunx releasing a solo album in February, we hope this isn’t the last we hear from this Shannon/Seth project.



Black Lips: ‘Arabia Mountain’
Buy directly from the label

Mark Ronson producing Black Lips. Yeah, we had our doubts too… but just seconds into the LP’s first track ‘Family Tree’ and this full 16-track album became the jam of the summer.



Ranch Ghost: ‘Live at Mt. Swag’
Buy directly from the label

Who needs a studio album?.. here is some live rock n’ damn roll at its finest! With a live show this promising, Ranch Ghost is one of our main bands to watch for in 2012.



Natural Child: ‘1971’
Buy directly from the label

A killer follow-up to several amazing 7-inch releases and the perfect soundtrack to start and end the party. (The songs streaming below are only 4 select tracks from the LP).



The Coasts: ‘The Coasts’
Buy directly from the band

A two-piece from Little Rock do good with their diverse self-released debut. Only available via Bandcamp this year, expect to hear a lot more from The Coasts in the coming year. You can download the full album for only $5 (above or below) and a portion of the record sales will go towards the Hope For Haiti’s Children Foundation.



Secret Cites: ‘Strange Hearts’
Buy directly from the label

A stellar sophomore effort that was released less than a year after their debut LP, 2010’s ‘Pink Graffiti.’ If you ask us, with 2 great full length albums in under a year, that’s pretty impressive!…  and the perfect formula for future success.



Nikki Lane: ‘Walk of Shame’
Buy directly from the label

A wonderful debut LP, Nikki Lane gives a fresh take to country’s roots while giving it a modern twist that is refreshing to hear.



Jeff the Brotherhood: ‘We Are The Champions’
Buy directly from the band

Look out world, the Jeff-bros are hear to stay! And this album says nothing but that. Recently signed to Warner Brothers (for the follow-up to this LP) and dropping an amazing 7-inch with Jack White via Third Man Records, we can’t wait to see what 2012 has instore for this 2-piece.

JEFF the Brotherhood: ‘Whatever I Want’

October 4, 2011 1 Comment

We had always been avid readers of Rolling Stone magazine since we were young music enthusiasts. But stopped subscribing just years ago, around the time they were telling us that Jonas Brothers had cranked out a 4-star album that ranked a top-40 album of the year status…

We bring this up because we were shocked by this Rolling Stone exclusive video premiere today for JEFF the Brotherhood‘s debut Third Man Records single & video for ‘Whatever I Want.’… NOT to sound negative about this exclusive at all– the publicity and exposure that JEFF the Brotherhood have been receiving for their latest LP ‘We Are the Champions’ has been amazing and VERY well deserved. What we are saying is that it is nice to see great music finally changing the industry. And it gives us FAITH (and a bit of relief) to see this happening with a band we have watched grow… and who we extremely enjoy.

The ‘Whatever I Want’ 7-inch (with the b-side cover of Tiger B. Smith’s ‘Everthing I Need’) is available now via Third Man Recordspick one up HERE… and catch them on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon October 6th!


PUJOL: Nasty, Brutish, and Short

September 7, 2011 2 Comments

PUJOL is no stranger to great record labels… from Jack White’s Third Man Records, to Jonas Stein’s Turbo Time Records, Jeff the Brotherhood’s Infinity Cat Records and not to forget Jeffery Drag Records. Nashville’s Daniel Pujol has been up to a lot of big things the past couple years. And to add that notch to the ‘ol label belt, PUJOL’s Saddle Creek Records debut EP is set to drop October 18th!

The EP is called ‘Nasty, Brutish, and Short’ and comes printed on a 10″ tye dye vinyl for only $11! Pre-order your copy HERE… And for a limited time (and a simple cost of an email), download yet another version of a classic PUJOL song (and one of our favorites) ‘Mayday,’ which is the first track off the EP… Also catch’em on tour this fall with Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Turbo Fruits and Ty Segall! Full tour and EP tracklisting below:

JEFF The Brotherhood: Health & Strength (Heavy Version)

July 10, 2011 1 Comment

JEFF the Brotherhood‘s latest LP ‘We Are The Champions’ has been on our turntable’s high rotation for the past few weeks… actually, anything that comes from their label Infinity Cat Records has been playing here non-stop at The South Rail this summer… Natural Child, Peach Killi Pop, PUJOL and Heavy Cream, just to name a few…

From ‘We Are the Champions’ comes the song ‘Health & Strength.’ The original take you are about to hear was from a recently pressed limited edition tour-ownly-sold 7″ that is now sold out. The album version of the song features sitars and violins. The track recently premiered via Stereogum… and now is available for free download:

A busy week in Best Coast news…

Best Coast and Jeff the Brotherhood have teamed up to release a 7″ split via Volcam this week. Each side of the split’s artwork was personally designed by each band and printed on translucent pink vinyl. Check out the tracks below… Side A features Best Coast’s ‘Sunny Adventure’ and Side B features Jeff the Brotherhood’s ‘Bummer.’

Also, Best Coast’s new video for their 2010’s ‘Crazy For You’ title track debuted this week via I Can Has a Cheezburger… Kind of unusual to premiere on a humorous cat blog, but once you see the video you’ll understand:
