Jason Boland and the Stragglers – Squelch
Jason Boland releases his new album Squelch, produced by Jim Ward, on October 9th. “His eighth studio album shows that Boland is still very much quick on his feet. There are touches of swing and pop-punk, nimble interaction between pedal steel guitar and violin, and one or two face-melting solos for good measure. Of course, the project is grounded by Boland’s gravelly baritone and his witty, winking lyricism.” – New York Times
