Eddie Seville (Steel Rodeo)
Based in Connecticut, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eddie Seville has further enhanced his considerable reputation with this outstanding third full-length album. It opens to the pulsating folk-rock of "A Crooked Mile" with its superb mandolin introduction and backing, and slows down with "The Queen Of Kerosene" (the goddess of gasoline), the latter is memorable for its iconic lines, "you're a blow torch in the dark, a powder keg on a spark, you're the one that I blame when my heart goes up in flame" - BLUES MATTERS
The Buttondowns have been bringing their brand of retro-modern music to the Connecticut scene for the past three years. With one studio CD and one live recording under their belt, the band plays a tasty mix of originals and covers that you won't hear anywhere else. If Elvis Presley was the fifth Beatle - they would sound an awful lot like The Buttondowns.
