Exclusive first listen to “What Love Can Do” by Austin supergroup The Resentments (Freedom Records, Jan. 20)

Can you call The Resentments a supergroup when the bulk of the population doesn’t know of a single soul in the band? In the world of Americana roots music you can. Whether these guys are household names or not, the band’s musical pedigree (besides being made up of a bunch of mutts) is very high. Comprised of “Scrappy” Jud Newcomb, Stephen Bruton, John Dee Graham, Bruce Hughes and John Chipman, this band can seem a little schizophrenic on record depending on who is singing and the style of song being played but their live show is renowned in Austin. At one point culminating in their even being named the best bar band in America.

“What Love Can Do” is the Graham Parker, Elvis Costello and Richard Thompson inspired “pop” single replete with squeezebox and mandolin. Buy the new record Roselight here.
