Local southern blues rockers, and longtime friends of the blog, Blackfoot Gypsies recently released the debut single to their upcoming third full-length To The Top. “Potatoes and Whiskey” features more of the Nashville twang than many of their blues fried tracks in the past, and will certainly be a moment to take your breath during their over the top live shows. For the new single, the band enlisted the help of fast rising East Nashville singer-songwriter Margo Price on backup vocals, and the effect is a punk tinged, honky tonk affair that will likely, finally, place the Nashville band on the national radar.
Aside from Price, the new self-produced album has some serious local talent chipping in from Spencer Cullum Jr and Spencer Hulscher (Steelism), Alexis Saski (Tennessee Muscle Candy), the Nashville Horns, and more. To The Top is out on April 14 (coincidentally two years to the day after the release of their previous LP, Handle It) via Plowboy Records. The band are currently in Austin for a SXSW run, but will be back in town for an April 14 release show at Little Harpeth Brewing. Head below to stream “Potatoes And Whiskey.”
