New Ben Franklins Release Two New Albums: 'Something Old Something New' And 'Something Borrowed Something Blue'

Tom Radigan – drums/vocals, David DeVoe – guitar/vocals etc, Jeremy Ziehe – bass guitar, Greg Pasquariello – guitar/vocals


Denver-based Americana act New Ben Franklins continue their 23-year career with the release of two new albums titled Something Old Something New and Something Borrowed Something Blue. Released separately but intended as a companion set, the recordings collect nine original songs written by vocalist/guitarist David DeVoe and nine cover songs that run the gamut from full-blooded Country & Western to British Shoegaze.


Showcasing songs that the Franklins have been honing in their live set over the past year. Something Old Something New collects a wide range of textures, from the plucky, poppy “Here Comes Chris” to the pure country twang of “I Don't Know What's Wrong With You Why Won't You Break My Heart?” and “Annie's Song (Down In Denton)”, to the Southern Rock of “Pied Piper” that leaves a bit of Southern Rock on the palate. “Beautiful Queen” is a wonderful love song to the fast-changing city of Denver, while “Michael” is a darkly beautiful tribute to one of DeVoe's favorite songwriters, Michael Been of The Call. The inclusion of “Whatever Happened to What's His Name?”, a track that recently appeared on the soundtrack for the motion picture The Creep Behind the Camera, is noteworthy in its hilarious lampooning of old timey American music.


Something Borrowed Something Blue somewhat follows the timeline of how DeVoe was introduced to different types of music, kicking off with a Waylon Jennings tune (How could it not? The band plays a series of Waylon tribute shows every February to mark the death anniversary of Jennings). Standouts include a retelling of the Echo and The Bunnymen classic “Bring On The Dancing Horses” and a noisome take on Swervedriver's “Last Train To Satansville.” The band even dug out a live version of a Catherine Wheel song, “Salt”, recorded with original band members back in 2000. And recalling DeVoe's Tucson roots is a brilliant Southwestern version of Tom Waits' “Jockey Full Of Bourbon.”

The two releases follow New Ben Franklins' critically acclaimed 2012 epic [peter gabriel]. Work on the two releases spanned just over two years and included a vast assortment of musical friends lending their talents to the songs. What began life as a simple two-EP project somehow dragged on much longer than originally planned. DeVoe recalls the records taking so long to be finished because “every time I would think we were getting close to a track listing, another song would pop up. It got to the point where thirteen months in I was getting frustrated that it was taking so long to finish two five-song EPs, so I sat down and made a track listing and realized we'd grown this thing into two full length records!”

New Ben Franklins are currently playing in and around the Rocky Mountain region with plans to do small regional touring to promote the new releases in spring. The band comprises David DeVoe (vocals, guitars), Jeremy Ziehe (bass), Tom Radigan (drums), and Greg Pasquariello (guitars). Not one to rest on his laurels, DeVoe is already beginning work on the band's next release which he says will be a “much darker, moodier collection of songs.”


These are quite good albums and you should purchase them both, the first from here, and the second here.

Nocona Release Fantastic New Album "Long Gone Song"

Justin Smith: Drums, Adrienne Isom: Guitar / Vocals, Chris Isom: Lead Vocals / Lead Guitar, Annie Rothschild: Upright Bass / Vocals, Elan Glasser: Harmonica (Photo Credit: Courtney Sudbrink)


Nocona’s roots are in Texas – songwriter, lead guitarist, and singer Chris Isom’s family are 6th generation Texans – but the band’s sun and stars rise over California. Nocona is about energy, a rock band with history. They draw their roots in Country, Folk, Punk and Rock. They take the psychedelia of the 13th Floor Elevators and mash it up with the Bakersfield sound—Roky and Buck; Love and the Burrito Brothers.

Long Gone Song is the band’s second studio release and was produced / recorded by both Chris Isom and Kevin Jarvis (Grant Lee Buffalo, Steve Wynn) at Jarvis’ Sonic Boom Room studio in Venice, CA. The album features guest appearances by pedal and lap steel legend, Greg Leisz (Bill Frisell, K.D. Lang, Joni Mitchell) as well as stalwart L.A. session musician Carl Byron (Anne McCue, Michelle Shocked, Jim Lauderdale) on B3 and electric piano. Long Gone Song follows up on Nocona’s 2013’s self-titled debut Nocona, which was released digitally with the 7 inch vinyl single Brimstone. Along with having songs from Nocona appear in the network series Bones (Fox) and Criminal Minds (CBS), the band has appeared at the major U.S. festivals Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and Stagecoach.



“Nocona, an L.A.-based roots band, just released Long Gone Song and I am quite impressed.  The band is tight, the songs the best Chris Isom has yet written, and the production loose but outstanding.”—Bob Segarini music blog

"If you are looking for a musical journey, Nocona's sophomore record Long Gone Song will do that and more. From the Texas country sounding pedal steel to the punk-rock infused guitar riffs, the sounds on this record are unexpectedly perfect together"--Red Dirt Reporter, Oklahoma

“This may be rock but this is rock with roots that go all the way to China, as we used to say in the olden days…each song seems to have its quirk, a specific Isom touch, be it a slightly off-kilter chord progression or vocal arrangement or even just a roots-deep approach.”—Frank Gutch Jr. for No Depression

"If Time can be seen a fiction invented so people can feel as though what they have achieved is to be celebrated or at least left with a satisfying taste in the bones, then Long Gone Song digs deep into the marrow and leads the rebellion against the static and the controlled"--Liverpool Sound and Vision

“Does Buddy Cage know about this?…Wild stuff that doesn't follow lines you've come to expect, just listening closely to the lyrics will flip you out. Outsider stuff that really hit's the mark and is sure to be celebrated by disenfranchised everywhere.”—Midwest Record

“Along with their knack for creating songs that musically stand up to any American act out there these days, their lyrics are thought provoking, often intense stories that can be darkly humorous at times.”—Music Morsels

OUTSIDE LANDS PRAISE:
“Why Outside Lands booked Nocona in the dreaded “first show of the day” spot is beyond us. The honky tonkin’ Americana rock band was solid, charismatic and well deserving of a better time slot. Husband-and-wife team Chris and Adrienne Isom held down the fort with the kind of twangy guitar and vocals you usually only find on the beer-soaked stage of Tootsie’s in Nashville…we’re sold.”-BOXX MAGAZINE

“Noon may have seemed like a pretty ambitious tee time following long Friday night sets by Kanye and Arctic Monkeys, but Mexicali blues band Nocona was up to the task and then some. “—Henry Hauser

“Nocona is one of the most promising frontrunners of the Americana revival scene as of late.” – Moxipop

From Bonnaroo:
“These cats rock some alt country sounds like nobody’s business. Look out, Mumford, there’s a new band in town! Hot pickin’ on a variety of instruments and styles compliment lyrics from ballads to rockin country blues, and I swear I hear a certain Mid-Western punk sound in there, too.” –MTM (Mid Tennessee Music)

This is one fantastic album, all killer no filler, do yourselves a huge favour, stream and then purchase, you will not be disappointed!!
