    Sue Foley

    The sound of Sue Foley takes you there. That high gain Tele through red hot tubes. That sultry, soulful, emotionally calloused way of singing. You put on her records and whatever space you’re currently in becomes blues night at an old Texas roadhouse. Drop the needle on Pinky’s Blues and get transported. Chris Layton’s sticks striking a snare – an impeccable sonic signature of Texas blues - pervades throughout the 12-track album. The Double Trouble drummer and Foley’s Jungle Show bandmate hits blues-beat nirvana on “Southern Men,” a flip of Tommy Brown’s little known “Southern Woman,” bracing beneath some of the redheaded guitarist’s rawest string work – with rugged phrasing offering a call-and-response to the vocal hook. Lesser-known covers highlight the LP: her take on Angela Strehli’s “Two Bit Texas Town” grooves low-down but prideful, while Sunny & the Sunliners “Think it Over” dissolves into a spotlight moment of pure Sue Foley oneness. 2018 masterclass The Ice Queen stands as a tough act to follow, but the pandemic-tracked, charismatic blues boogies of Pinky’s, cut with Mike Flanigin on the spinning organ, Layton on skins, and forever-bassist Jon Penner, hit with a likable singularity. The record drops Oct. 22, but Austin gets the release show early at Antone’s, where late proprietor Clifford first summoned the young Canadian transplant in 1990.

    Cheap Trick, Eric Tessmer

    “We’re too dumb to quit,” Cheap Trick supremo Rick Nielsen recently said. “We just love to play.” Accordingly, the World’s Greatest Power-Pop Band must’ve felt like caged tigers during COVID-19 lockdown – they normally average 150 road dates annually. Hence, this trek supporting their 20th studio full-length In Another World probably feels like the orgasm ending a 15-year dry spell. The record sounds like, well, a great Cheap Trick album: Lennon and McCartney popcraft meets the raw power of early Who and Jeff Beck-era Yardbirds. Live, they’re consistently great.

    High Desert Queen (album release & costume party), Rickshaw Billie's Burger Patrol, Holy Death Trio, Goodeye

    Only two years into their formation, High Desert Queen managed to nail a mature punk rock edge – the kind you want sittin’ on your shelf – packed tight with thoughtfully cohesive and gnarly sounds. Gracefully written, their debut Secrets of the Black Moon comes bearing eight repeat worthy tracks stocked with driving downbeats from Phil Hook, heavy bass from Matt Metzger, invigorating chords from Rusty Miller, and spellbinding words from Ryan Garney. Rickshaw Billie’s Burger Patrol, Holy Death Trio, and Goodeye join the party, kicking off the inevitably high-octane performance. Oh, and in the spirit of the holiday, wear your best action movie character fit – make sure it dooms!
