Review Roundup: Allendales, Dixie Whiskey, and Mud, Blood & Beer

Written on October 9, 2009 – 12:40 pm | by whiskeychick |

In the first Review Roundup we’ll take a listen to The Allendales, Dixie Whiskey, and Mud, Blood & Beer.

The Allendales: “Drunkard’s Dream of Immortality” - The tune is well-assembled, catchy, and overall good. I can hear it being played on Willie’s Place easily. sadly, mainstream radio has long since left this easygoing Americana style.

Dixie Whiskey: “Wheels On The Wind” - While being a good slow-down song, I can’t find anything that stands out with these guys except that they could be a dead ringer for Jimmy Buffet’s sound.

Mud, Blood & Beer: “Lucy” - If Jason Aldean’s backup band were to play for the lead singer of Marcy’s Playground you would have Mud, Blood & Beer. More 90’s alt-rock than country, the song swaggers and slides and they may be marketing to the wrong demographic.

Review Roundup has our staff listen to 3 singles, submitted to us at ReviewShine, and give their gut reaction.
