We have the whole crew in The Helm for this week’s episode featuring Joel Roth of The Low Bones in advance of the band’s record release show this Friday night at Secret Society here in Portland.
Joel brought along his pal, the great Paul Brainard, for some accompaniment on a few live performances in The Helm. Both songs are from the new Low Bones album Waiting For The Dawn, which we’ve been featuring on the podcast these past few weeks. Joel also shared some thoughts about the record, the inspiration for the music and what he has planned for the big show on Friday night. Suffice it to say you locals won’t want to miss this one. We’ll be there in force and are excited to share the interview and terrific performances with you.
The playlist for this week’s episode leans heavily on artists who will be playing the third-annual Wildwood MusicFest & Campout this coming July. The recently announced lineup has our crew geeking out with anticipation of what’s sure to be one of if not the biggest event of the year on the That Much Further West Podcast calendar.
We also are blessed this week to share some exclusive music from our friends Spirit Lake, who just wrapped recording on their second album, as well as great new music from Cutbank, Hearts of Oak, Root Jack and local country faves Brush Prairie.
