A qwerky concept of dancy tunes and punk aggression all combined in a sweaty live show.
Heavy vocals, simple beats and busted guitar hammering.
Like Roxette, with knives.
Aerobics for anarchists.

INFO ABOUT THE ALBUM
11 rough folk numbers rooted in the country and blues music make up All My Exes’s second studio album ’From the Hen House’. The music ranges from thoughtful notes to energetic dance tunes. ‘From the Hen House’ is written, recorded and produced by the band themselves, and it has all come into existence in an old bunker from the Second World War.

Find a farm, catch a hen, scatter flour out over it and throw it up into the air – then you have the cover. Mix guitar, drums, banjo and organ and add Steffen Christensen’s rough vocal – then you have the music. Welcome to ’From the Hen House’!

All My Exes is ready with 11 new mucky folk numbers rooted in the country and blues music. Festive dance tunes along with more calm numbers are served on the band’s second studio album ’From the Hen House’. The notes from the banjo make it difficult to keep still.

The creator and front man of the band, Steffen Christensen, is born and bred in Southern Jutland, for which reason Tønder Festival has been a crucial part of his musical upbringing. This is obvious from All My Exes’s unmistakable folk sound. Like their debut album, ’From the Hen House’ is written, recorded and produced by the band themselves in their own studio, a bunker from the Second World War. In this setting, the unique sound of All My Exes has been built.

Once again All My Exes team up with some of the best blues and folk musicians in Denmark, Ronni Boysen, J.Tex and Lasse Herbst.

A concert with All My Exes is always worth a visit. Since their debut album “From Nashville to El Paso” in 2013, the band has been giving tons of concerts around Denmark. Festivals and well-established venues as well as private living rooms, barns and gardens have set the scene. Actually, intimate concerts have almost become the band’s trademark.

The band is composed of guitarist and backing vocalist Mikkel M. Christensen, drummer Lars Andersen, bassist Mads Bay, and lead singer Steffen Christensen also playing banjo and dobro guitar.

J.Tex & The Volunteers – Old Ways vs New Days out Jan 30.

See the brand new video “Ship Coming In” from the album

With his trusty banjo and guitar in hand J.Tex often makes the journey across the sea between Denmark and Sweden, bringing with him his crafted americana sounds of blues and country music.press1-(1)_lo

This is the fifth album from one of Denmark’s most interesting and coolest artists, the album takes the listener on a heart felt and charming journey through a ever changing soundscape of violins, bass clarinet, vocals and of course his brilliant guitar and banjo work.

The album focuses on J.Tex’s vast experiences, but at the same time opening up his curiosity to new musical ideas, this is the main theme to ‘Old Ways vs New Days’.

It has taken many trips across the sea to record the album, from his home in Copenhagen to the Heptown family studio in Lund, Sweden. Here J Tex and his fellow musicians The Volunteers recorded the new album, together with the very skillful sound engineer Carl Granberg. Experimenting with new sound ideas and new instrumentation techniques, often creating an almost cinematic sound score.

The final result is ten finely crafted songs, recorded together with guest musician Bebe Risenfors (who played with Tom Waits), and of course the Volunteers, Tue Lund Christensen on bass and Jason Bedard on drums.

J.Tex was born in Detroit and raised in Denmark, he feels quite at home in both in the United States, where he has many musical collaborators, and in Copenhagen, where he lives today.

He is very much part of the Southern Swedish rock’n'roll scene, where a love of music, vintage American cars, old motorcycles, vintage clothing and the shine of well greased hair is very much a way of life.

The best of USA, Denmark and Sweden come together on this, the coolest album release this winter!

”A strange highly original, cleverly constructed and
loose take on the genre.”
- Mike Morrison

”Heptown has a truly impressive feel for roots and
rockabilly music and the know how to pick their band.
J.Tex & The Volunteers is another great Heptown act.”
- Buster Fayte

”At times it’s like Seasick Steve meets Cab Calloway, others it’s more Tom Waits meets
Maurice Chevalier. It’s certainly different, but most importantly, it’s wonderful.”
- Music People

Hi,

as an answer to all songs glorifying the season soon to be upon us Finnegan’s Hell has released the single “Drunken Christmas”; an unorthodox Christmas carol in the fashion of social realism. To make sure everybody gets the message a warts-and-all-video accompanies the song:

“Drunken Christmas” is the ending track on the album “Drunk, Sick And Blue”, which was released by Heptown Records on September 26, and the song has been voted “best Christmas song” by the readers of GAFFA, Sweden’s biggest music magazine. Judge for yourself, and if you dig the video, feel free to publish it on your website.

“Drunken Christmas” is available through Spotify and iTunes.

Happy holidays!

THE DON DARLINGES NEW ALBUM!

Posted: October 31, 2014 by Heptown Records in Event, Records
The re-release is upon us!!

The Don Darlings -  “The Don Darlings”
NEW ALBUM CD/LP – OUT NOW (Oct. 31)

Dark Southern Americana
Recorded in Paul-Lincke Studios in Berlin
Don Alsterberg (Graveyard, Junip) have mixed the album
 

“Like a dying heart at the bottom of a muddy black hole, The Don Darlings pump forth grinding sorrow with a confident genuineness that would probably impress both Nick Cave and Tom Waits alike. This is a very successful hybrid of the blackest soul of country with the hardest genres of Central Europe from the 80’s, with one foot in Dallas and the other in Berlin.”

These words come from a review of a live show the band performed at Way Out West-festival in 2011. By this time the band had received roaring reviews for their debut album, The Shortest Straw, which helped propel them onto the end of the year “best of ” lists in native Sweden, like Sonic and Dagens Skiva. They had also already gone on several European tours.

The Don Darlings hailed sound has been associated with the genre called Dark Southern Americana, where Sergio Leone and Quentin Tarantino bloody knuckles over direction while Waits and Cave complete the soundtrack. Text and music become intertwined and every song proposes the possibility of a new cinematic experience.With the prospect of new record round the corner, the band followed their analogue dreams. They decided to record at Paul-Lincke Studios in Kreuzberg, Berlin as well as bring in Don Alsterberg (Graveyard, Junip) to mix the album and bring it all back home. The record cracks and sparkles, rustling forward through a fateful musical landscape where troubled love meets madness. While the debut record directly reflected what the band delivered on stage, this record manifests something more subtle and pensive. The dark undertones have become more prominent. The disharmonies more apparent. The Don Darlings are going to warm many souls this fall or, at the very least, make them more restless.

JohnnyBodeHepTown Records just signed The Don Darlings to the label – a great Swedish band from Gothenburg with an American singer.

A new single/video ”If You Can’t Be Good” is out October 10. The song is from the self titled second album that will be out October 24 on Heptown Records.

The Don Darlings hailed sound has been associated with the genre called Dark Southern Americana, where Sergio Leone and Quentin Tarantino bloody knuckles over direction while Waits and Cave complete the soundtrack. Text and music become intertwined and every song proposes the possibility of a new cinematic experience.

The Don Darlings – If You Can’t Be Good

iTunes
https://itunes.apple.com/se/album/if-you-cant-be-good-single/id918180597

”If You Can’t Be Good” is an odyssey about the life of an infamously pathological liar who some believe was named Johnny Bode. The title is a veiled, yet precise, warning about how life can turn out through a destructive device of doing everything you can in the most horrendous manner possible. Yet at the same time, there is an enormous power to this come-back king. He was a driven by a thirst to prove his talent and fight against the narrow-mindedness of his age. An unbearable ability to always find new ways to succeed despite the chains of his powerful madness.

“Like a dying heart at the bottom of a muddy black hole, The Don Darlings pump forth grinding sorrow with a confident genuineness that would probably impress both Nick Cave and Tom Waits alike. This is a very successful hybrid of the blackest soul of country with the hardest genres of Central Europe from the 80’s, with one foot in Dallas and the other in Berlin.”

Finnegan’s Hell -  “Jar Of Porter” from the new album “Drunk Sick And Blue” out today Sep. 26.

Sweden’s biggest music magazine, Gaffa, about the new video from Finnegan’s Hell:

“The Swedish powerlifter Johnny Wahlqvist makes quite a performance in the new video from Finnegan’s Hell. Johnny knocked back twelve pints of porter within an hour, and would have continued drinking even more, had his stomach only allowed it. The hamburger and fries that he had consumed right before the video shoot suddenly made its way out of Johnny, and the production assistant had to clean vomit off the floor. The leather outfit that Johnny is wearing in one of the scenes used to belong to the world famous, Swedish discus thrower, Richy Bruch, who wore it in honor of Native Americans in the United States. A must-see!”

Drunk Sick And Blue album cover* The long-awaited full-length album from Finnegan’s Hell, following the band’s critically acclaimed, self-titled EP.
* Includes the Celtic punk hit “Drunken Christmas”, which was voted “best Christmas song of the year” in 2013 by the readers of Sweden’s biggest music magazine, Gaffa.

* “Finnegan’s Hell represents the new wave of European Celtic punk” /The Irish Times
