11/02/2015 – Shakey Graves-If Not For You (2015)

Texan folkie channels past to create something memorable

 

 

Nobody’s Fool is the new album from Shakey Graves. Mixing traditional folk, roots with psychedelica, Shakey Graves has pushed the boundaries of what contemporary folk can be since his 2011 excellent debut album Roll the Bones.

 

 

Opening track If Not For You, conjures up images of the desert, dust bowls and Nick Drake, but you know in a Stetson. The rest of the album is chocked full of the dissonance charm that peppers Shakey Graves previous work.

 

 

This album is available through the Shakey Graves bandcamp page, so why not go there now and check it out!
