The Henry Clay People Are Coming!

The Henry Clay People are set to release Somewhere on The Golden Coast via their new label TBD Records, on June 8th. Somewhere On The Golden Coast is comprised of 11 cracking and varied tracks over a not nearly long enough 34 minutes. Recorded by Earlimart head honcho Aaron Espinoza at Ship Studios in Eagle Rock ,CA, Espinoza urged the band to lose the headphones, drink more beer, and record the albums tracks live to tape. It might be the newness of the record, or it really is as good as I think it is. Let me listen to it ten more times before I commit my review to these pages.

The band has offered up the album track Slow Burn at their official site for the price of your e-mail address, or you can listen below.
