Truck Store Recommends – The Americans

These guys are set to become your new favourite roots band, having worked as the house band on the soundtrack to Jack White and T Bone Burnett’s recent documentary series American Epic. The project charts the story of how, threatened by the emerging popularity of radio, record companies trawled the states for new sounds and tapped into a rich store of local roots styles to bring to a wider audience.

The Americans more than proved their capabilities (all songs for the show were recorded live), and on this second full length record of their own material they take bluesy country music and smash it together with heavy doses of blue collar rock-n-roll attitude and authentic emotion to leave you with a lump in your throat.

Like cross between Drive-By Truckers and Auguestones, these LA rockers have authenticity and attitude in spades!
