PROPER MUSIC: New artists you must hear in 2012 (Pt. 5)...
Israel Gripka Nash - Barn Doors & Concrete Floors
The 11 track record plays like a vinyl relic stored in the belly of your father’s basement. You put it on, you flip it, flip it again! "Barn Doors & Concrete Floors serves to kick with classic Rock N Roll grit, yet it pines with Americana and Roots heart.
"Retreating to the Catskills he reflects on the city’s temptation (Fool’s Gold, Louisiana) and hard-won redemption (Goodbye Ghost, Four Winds) on a swaggering country rock album that recalls The Rolling Stones’ greatest flirtations with the South’s soul and blues." - Q Magazine
