In 2007, the band was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance for their song, “Mucky the Duck.” The tune was inspired by one of the band’s favorite musical venues in Texas, The Mucky Duck.

By which they mean McGonigel’s Mucky Duck, here in Houston. Check it out some time.

Music I Like: Wood Brothers

How did I miss these guys? The Wood Brothers are Oliver and Chris Wood. Chris you might recognize from Medeski Martin and Wood. The collaboration is more roots-oriented, but retains the consummate musicianship.

Old Californio, Westering Again

I’m loving the first couple of tracks from Old Californio. The album comes out April 7th.

Recorded in their old chicken coop garage turned recording studio in Pasadena, CA, Old Californio set out to mix a gritty soup of bucolic rock and roll influenced as much by Moby Grape, Crazy Horse and The Grateful Dead as by the chaparral canyons and ungovernable San Gabriel mountains themselves. The 10 songs on Westering Again evoke winsome images of riparian vistas and wine stained front porches, and of places forgotten and out of the way. The album ventures from raw riparian rock & roll, to harmony rich folk/ country, to the psychedelic/ philosophic.

Westering Again will be released on their own independent Californio Records label and will available for sale on April 7th through CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon.com and was co-produced by Old Californio and Alfonso Rodenas (Mark Olson, Ben Vaughn, Los Tigres Del Norte) and mixed / mastered at Las Virgenes Recording. The core of the band include singer/ guitarist Rich Dembowski, drummer Justin Smith, bassist Jason Chesney, guitarist Woody Aplanalp and keyboardist Levi Nu̱ez. Also, contributing to the album are their heavy friends Рfrequent collaborator Dave Gleason on guitar, bassist Tony Russell, accordionist Debra Tala, trumpeteer Slim Zwerling, and pianist Dan Mudd.
