Some dust just won't wash off. Ask roots country songwriter Cahalen Morrison. His new album, The Flower of Muscle Shoals (out Aug 19 on Free Dirt Records), with his full band Country Hammer, is caked with the dust of the American Southwest. It's the dust of a childhood growing up in Northern New Mexico; days spent exploring lost canyons, hiking hillsides covered in cottonwoods, and discovering old ghost towns. It's also the dust of nostalgia, the kind of reflection of a just-married man looking back towards the inspirations of his youth.

Cahalen Morrison grew up surrounded by the deep roots of country music; he played in his first country (and ranchero) band as a precocious 13 year old. Leaving New Mexico as a young man, his music began to branch out. "I did what every teenager does, and decided to go down the rock, and whatever road," Cahalen explains. "But then I came back around to acoustic music, and now back to country. I love the focus on singing and the songs; I love the deep sincerity, the absurd humor… But obviously, overall, I really just love the music." That full circle journey enabled Cahalen to develop a sound that sets him apart from other country artists.

SUPERMULE is a strange breed. As a collective of players culled from a wide range of musical scenes, this San Francisco-based band uses the forms and melodies of American roots music to explore common ground and celebrate diverse musical backgrounds. Strings+Keys+Brass+Beats. The result is a refreshing bluegrass ruckus- ancient tones merging with the moxy of jazz and bravado of rock 'n roll. Formed in 2011, SUPERMULE features a rotating cast of skilled and intrepid musos who channel and transcend their native genres- creating a sound that is audaciously eclectic and uniquely traditional.
