Small Stone Records have an unerring talent of unearthing firebrand rock bands with a protean ability to blow ones socks off with all the robust force of a typhoon and recent signings 'The Brought Low' are no exception. These sticky fingered New Yorker's crank out refried honky tonk shimmy shake with all the hard rockin' bravura of vintage Aerosmith.
The Brought Low - Right on Time Joyously "Right on Time" is far from mere Stonesian nostalgia as this album smoulders with a myriad of bluesy guitar hip shakers and if y'all fancy getting' high an' wired this weekend one could do a lot worse than cranking up the full bloodied, 'Blues for Cubby' with it's hep cat syntax and sassy Foghat grunt that translates into one big ass good time.
'Tell Me' is probably their most incandescent ode, Benjamin Howard Smith's lucid guitar lines are super-charged with enough feisty Joe Perry shuck an' frug to burn off Daisy Duke's hot pants, a deliriously infectious barroom meltdown that should inspire libidinous movement in even the most conservative of muscles.
The Brought Low are a euphoric rock n' roll rebirth somewhere betwixt the incorrigible scuzz bag blues of Johnny Thunders and the anthemic, exultant pissed up boogatron of Humble Pie. 'Right on Time' will shake more than your moneymaker, daddio! [As an addendum vocalist, Benjamin Howard Smith's delivery is extraordinarily similar to the idiosyncratic pitch of the legendary singer-songwriter, Kevin Coyne, quite startling and unexpected really].

"Loudness is not so much a priority as it is just the way we do things," explains the voice of Father Phoenix, Kris Maedke-Russell. "There is just something beautiful about that extra sensory experience of feeling the music as well as seeing and hearing it. Think about bands like the Who and Hendrix, and just how loud and unbridled they were. That's what rock 'n' roll should sound like. That's what rock 'n' roll should feel like. Hopefully we do it some justice." (myspace)
ROCK ON !!!

Like a Four wheel Drive, Hogjaw, have taken the off-road into the music industry head-on. Brandishing they’re own trail of rock & roll, Hogjaw, have brought back the sound of pure listening. Cranking tunes and bringing music back for the people that can be understood by all walks. With vocals telling stories, guitar blazing & drums thundering: Hogjaw’s debut record’s “Devil in the Details”& “Ironwood” are going to come at you like a freight train of sound! Hailing from the desert land of Arizona – Hogjaw is bringing in the rock from the Southwest. The quartet includes; Jonboat Jones (vocals/guitar), Kreg Self (lead guitar), Elvis DD (Bass) & J. "Kwall" Kowalski (drums) deliver a dose of genuine rocking goodness. Hogjaw was formed in late 2006 through the power of jamming…” when we realized what we had, it just snowballed.” Everyone in the band are standing friends from High School with one common goal, rocking, it became almost instant for the music to develop. With years of playing in label bands, touring afar, and playing beat-up acoustic guitars in and around the hills, these guys find their talents on a way of their own. It is spoken through the songs…and with support from everyone surrounding Hogjaw….things couldn’t be more fun for the group! (myspace)
