Bloodshot records


In today’s advent calendar window – a free gift boys ‘n’ girls! See, as we reach the end of a long and lightless tunnel of a year folks is looking to write lists and think on their favourite things from it all the same – find some comfort and evidence it wasn’t all so depressing and such. Reckoned on doin’ a round-up mix here maybe and I was struck by the strong showing of Bloodshot records in that little pile of sticks. Seemed to me my best of 2016 might as well be a best of Bloodshot, just about. Ain’t quite that way but, turns out last year, pretty much to the day, they gave away a 20 song sampler that y’all can still download for free and for nothin’. I’ve no idea if a similar thing is about to pop up for 2016 but I say get this ‘un and keep an eye. Like any record label collection it’s not 100% solid gold (Bloodshot are a little fonder of the sturdy bar room business than I am) but it really has a strikingly high hit rate, oughts to get you pulling on yer shit kickers and kickin’ some shit

Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, Freakwater, Robbie Fulks, The Mekons, Wayne Hancock, Dex Romweber, Lydia Loveless, Luke Winslow-King and so on
