Atlanta Supergroup Diamond Rugs have released video footage of their epic track “Gimme A Beer” this week. For those of you stoked on this musical project that sees various members of Black Lips, Dead Confederate, Deer Tick, Six Finger Satellite and Los Lobos get together for a country/garage party, check out this footage of their debut show and hope they are making plans to visit the UK.
A full album has been recorded, so look out for release dates soon but for now, pop over to our free download feature to pick up this tune for nish.
2012 is shaping up to be a pretty vintage year for decent albums so let us introduce you to yet another contender that should stoke you out if you like your garage rock and country.
Firstly, it’s best to mention that Diamond Rugs is a project that was conceived back in August last year. John McCauly and Robbie Crowell from Deer Tick, Ian St Pe from Black Lips, Bryan Dufresne of Six Finger Satellite, Steve Berlin from Los Lobos and Hardy Morris from Dead Confederate went down to Nashville, Tennessee together to lay down some tracks and miracles happened. Speaking to Morris back then, he mentioned to us on a telegram that: “We were planning on recording 5 songs, and we did 14, so I guess you could say we had fun! It’s got a couple of Ian’s songs, 4 of mine, and the rest are John’s and other folks. Should come out early next year, I’ll keep you in the loop.”
Fast forward to January 18th and Diamond Rugs has surfaced online with a taster of what’s to come in a tune called ‘Gimme a Beer‘. The result, a mighty fine slab of catchy, slide guitar and horn assisted, country-rock’n’roll with a dirty Southern edge that makes you want to shake your shit over and over. I quote the words, “Damn it feels good to be a gangster!”
Check it out for yourself, download this tune for free and look out for an album announcement for the UK pretty soon.
