The Vandoliers + Cory Branan

Sunday, April 28, 2019, 4:00 AM


Moe's Alley & KPIG Radio present a very special co-headline performance with VANDOLIERS & CORY BRANAN.
VANOLIERS are the next wave of Texas music. The six-piece Dallas-Fort Worth group channels all that makes this vast state unique: tradition, modernity, audacity, grit, and-of course-size. Forever puts it all together for an enthralling ride down a fresh Lone Star highway.  Produced and recorded by Adam Hill (Low Cut Connie, The Bo-Keys, Deer Tick, Don Bryant, Zeshan B) at American Recording Studios in Memphis, TN, the band's third album (and first with Bloodshot) Forever is a mix of youthful and defiant punk, rugged Red Dirt country, and vibrant Tejano. The full-length's 10 songs blend emblematic rock 'n' roll with bold horns, violin, and a slather of twang reflecting where the band is from, where they've been and, eventually, where they'll be headed. It's regional and universal all the same.
 
ABOUT CORY BRANAN - 
ADIOS is Cory Branan's death record. Not the cheeriest of openings, but like all of Branan's mercurial work it's probably not what you think. As funny and defiant as it is touching and sad, this self-dubbed "loser's survival kit" doesn't spare its subjects or the listener.  Not even Branan's deceased father is let off the hook. In the tender homage "The Vow" he drolly cites his father's favorite banality "that's what you get for thinking" as "probably not the best lesson for kids." For most songwriters that would be the punchline but Branan pushes through words and, in his father's actions, finds a kind of "genius in the effortless way he just 'did'."
