6-8am: American Routes With Nick Spitzer
We’re bringing the blues from the clubs to the church this week on American Routes. The Campbell Brothers, from Rochester, NY, are masters of sacred steel. With both pedal and lap steel guitars, they summon the spirit in voice and sound. We’ll talk about growing up in the church and playing gospel blues on the guitar. Then, New Orleans bluesman Walter “Wolfman” Washington stops by the American Routes studio for a conversation about his life in the music and in the clubs around town.

Courtney Barnett’s ambling lyricism and laid back delivery are applied to perfect effect on Depreston, a song about the slow realization that you might not be in the happiest of locales. Her new album, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, is out March 24 via Mom + Pop Music.
If accomplished producer Emile Haynie’s latest single only featured a guest appearance from Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, that would be a big enough deal. If it only featured a guest appearance from Brian Wilson, that would be an even bigger deal. So the fact that both vocalists can be heard on Falling Apart is downright amazing.
4th and Roebling is the lead cut from The Districts debut full-lenght, A Flourish And A Spoil, which is out now on Fat Possum. Produced by John Congleton, it’s the follow-up to last year’s self-titled EP from the eastern Pennsylvania indie rockers.
Supergroup Diamond Rugs (featuring members of Deer Tick, Los Lobos, Dead Confederate, Six Finger Satellite and The Black Lips) is prepping a new album. In anticipation of Cosmetics, which is out Feb. 24, the band has given us a three-song sampler with a track from the new record as well as songs by Deer tick and Dead Confederate’s T. Hardy Morris.
Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist seem to really like Christmas. They’ve released several Christmas albums over the years as Over the Rhine, with their latest (Blood Oranges in the Snow) hitting shelves last month. That said, it doesn’t mean the husband-and-wife duo whitewash the holiday season like many musicians. Instead, Blood Oranges is what they’ve decided to call “reality Christmas” music.
Even the Snow Turns Blue gives a nice sampling of Over the Rhine’s various Christmas offerings, from the more traditional to the incredibly personal. Consider it an early Christmas present from us to you.
Matthew Ryan recorded his latest album with a pretty hefty supporting cast, and it shows. Boxers features the work of Kevin Salem, The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon, Brian Bequette and Joe Magistro of Black Crowes fame. It’s also the tiniest bit of a departure from recent records in that his 13th LP is an all-out rock and roll affair.
We Lit a Fire is a five-song sampler that showcases the range of Boxers and the punch it displays, both musically and lyrically.
