NEW MUSIC: Chris Shiflett – West Coast Town

4ad37413-2f64-43b0-9857-5272b3493ba9

Chris Shiflett’s main gig might be as guitarist for the Foo Fighters but he’s slowly but surely been establishing himself as a country musician with his band Dead Peasants and now his new Dave Cobb-produced solo LP West Coast Town, out on April 14th via SideOneDummy Records/Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Rolling Stone has already said the new LP “….flawlessly blends blue-collar country punk with a catchy Bakersfield bounce. Borrowing the rowdy swagger of Prison Bound-era Social Distortion and the SoCal sheen of Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam, Shiflett crafts a sound that is both geographically grounded and wholly his own.”

Also highly recommended is Shiflett’s podcast Walking The Floor  where he chats to (mostly) country music artists such as Lucinda Williams, Tim Easton, Sturgill Simpson, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam and more.
