FINNEGAN’S HELL – “DRUNKEN CHRISTMAS”

Posted: November 26, 2014 by Heptown Records in Event, Records, Video

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.

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.

The Don Darlings – If You Can’t Be Good

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.
* Includes the band’s classic version of “The Molly Maguires”, which has become an underground hit on Youtube with more than half a million views.
* “Finnegan’s Hell represents the new wave of European Celtic punk” /The Irish Times
* The music of Finnegan’s Hell has been played frequently on Paddy Rock Radio and is featured on all major Celtic punk websites and radio stations.

CDCOVERx500Raising money to fund the bands new album “Old Ways vs. New Days”!

My name is Jens Einer – a.k.a. J. Tex. I’m the singer and songwriter in my band J. Tex & The Volunteers, and also play the guitar, banjo and violin. I was born in Detroit, in the USA, but I grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark. I have been playing different instruments since I was six.

The band and I have been working on our next album, and we need your help to finish it. It’s firmly rooted in American folk music but with a twist.  Taking instruments from American folk music and torn up beats, we’ll mix European and American flavors to produce a new take on a classic sound.  It’s a strong, warm and friendly album for respect to friends and families. The album will be called “Old Ways – New Days”, and with your help we hope to raise enough money to get it done.

will be followed by a video to visually express the depth and thoughts behind this new effort. A more avant-garde expression and a wide combination of traditional folk music mixed with pop, rock, home-made crunch and catchy choruses.

Americana covers such a huge ground of elements in music and Inside Of You is filed under that genre description.
