Somehow Pleasing Some of the People None of the Time, the new album from Minneapolis's J Eastman and The Drunk Uncles, slipped by me when it was released in late spring. I know I heard it, and enjoyed it, but it slipped off my radar. The good news about that is that the album is now available for a free download! The opening song, "Don't Listen to Me," is a bit more straightforward hard rock than I expected it to be. It seems to be the oddity of the bunch, because after that we're back to the boozy haze of country twangified loud power pop that we expect from J Eastman and The Drunk Uncles. Pleasing Some of the People None of the Time has this amazing Uncle Tupelo meets The Replacements sound that we all need in our lives.
You can listen to "Holding On" below. Pleasing Some of the People None of the Time is now available for the "Name Your Price" option on J Eastman and The Drunk Uncle's Bandcamp. As always, if you download it for free, at least help the band out by giving them a follow on Facebook.
