Upcoming: Ghost Gamblers — Sunday, June 21


Earl Greyhound's Kamara Thomas steps out with her country-rock project, Ghost Gamblers.  I haven't heard it, but it sounds interesting, based on this Village Voice clip: "This local country-rock outfit may appear to be a fledgling band, but it is certainly well seasoned, containing members of the Basement Band and Larune as it does.

LISTENING POST: Ghost Gamblers–"Stranded in San Antone"

While we await the next Earl Greyhound album, here's a taste of bassist Kamara Thomas' country-rock project, Ghost Gamblers.  For those of you with a soft spot for Americana and southern rock, this should do just fine.  The song tells a great story, has propulsive energy, a hummable hook, and features Kamara on lead vox.  [...]
