The Bottlecap Boys Rework Classic Sounds in "East to West" 4.19

The Bottlecap Boys Rework Classic Sounds in "East to West" 4.19

The Bottlecap Boys will be releasing their new album, East to West, April 19th at the Wonder Ballroom. East to West takes an old classic house of music with chipped white paint, broken windows, porch falling apart and remodel it into something beautiful. The foundation of this musical house is a solid base of the greats of country and bluegrass. A certain Hank Williams Sr. waltz sound and good old fashioned Bill Monroe form the foundation, with some tinges of what might be called Irish-punk adorning the walls. What’s important is that the Bottlecap Boys take well worn grooves then rework, polish and innovate the sounds to make something new and fresh. Among the notable aspects of their new album are the lyrics and vocals. Most bluegrass(y) groups have the standard elements - thumping bass, the devil’s fiddle wailing away and mandolin plucking around like a chicken. The Bottlecap Boys lack nothing in the standard elements but instead bring inventive songwriting and lyrics to the table as well. A great example of this is the slower-paced track, “Bridges,” which is a wonderful synergy of country waltz, bluegrass particulars and a hint of sea shanty. The release of East to West promises to be one hell of an event, so be there or be square. Friday, April 19th at the Wonder Ballroom. - Cory Huennekens
