Golden Bones

I find it really hard to believe that there is no Southern Rock tag on Jamendo!  However, here we are – without any southern rock from my favourite free music website.  I didn’t want to give up without a fight though; luckily, the blog A Truer Sound put out a “Free Album Alert” on a really great album.

That album is a self-titled effort put forth by Golden Bones.  It’s not exactly southern rock, but it’s not pure country either.  It is, however, very good.  It’s your standard Americana-type music, complete with typical songs about girls (see Laureline and Adeline), and other things related to the south / the country (see Beatin’ a Dead Horse and Bearskin Rug).

I don’t have a favourite track for this album, but I am really liking My Kind.  Overall, I find that the lead singer’s voice sounds a lot like James Taylor, and the music sounds like something Taylor might play as well.  A Truer Sound likened Golden Bones to groups like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America, and older country rock in general.  I would have to wholeheartedly agree!
