Ghettoblaster Had Some Great Things to Say About Reaches' Upcoming Album, 'I Am Alive And Well' Out on February 19th.

“The avant-pop of Reaches’ debut album I Am Alive And Well has the wide-eyed, exploratory spirit of early ’80s popular music without dipping into the cliches and tropes of the era. Asymmetrical synth melodies dance over a bed of off-kilter electronic ostinatos, sounding simultaneously familiar and alien, infectious yet disorienting.”

Wonky Tonk shares a love song for Bulleit Bourbon...

Today’s track leaves the modern at the door as “Bulleit” comes at you with the directness of Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson while still fresh like Nikki Lane. You get the story and the strings as Lorraine sings “and I’ll drink to the morning; and I’ll sing through the night.”

Grab some headphones and head on over to The Fire Note for the new single “Bulleit” from Wonky Tonk .
