Lee Bob Watson – aficiondo! (Grass roots Recording Co., August 24)(plus a new recording from Alela Diane)


Grass Roots Record Company is Californian, they’re a little like a coop I think. They do things differently; like together, as a family. It’s kind of weird. The new record, Aficiondo!, from Jackpot member Lee Bob Watson is coming out soon. “Living In the Past” is a song that blends a lot of different musical styles from the 60′s and 70′s and winds up sounding like the dusty euro-country rock of Chuck Prophet’s solo records. Apparently the whole record is about one character, a country singer, navigating his way though the vagaries of pop culture and hipsters and self-styled outcasts (sounds like the crowd at p4k Fest).

Here’s a taste from this August release. Pre-order it or the Grass Roots Family Album record here.
