Swampcandy – She Calls To Me
Underground Wednesday is proud to support the first single from the new Swampcandy record, She Calls To Me. Swampcandy is the latest moniker of Ruben Dobbs, former member of the bands Burn the Fields, Feed Bag, Fungo Bat, and Dingleberry Dynasty. Ruben’s also released a record on Underground Wednesday under the name Velvet Thud and in his free time, serves as the guitarist of the fabulous alt-country band, Van Meter. Michael Macey from the Chesapeake Music Guide says She Belongs To Me is “a genre defying collection of 18 songs that spans the eclectic musical tastes of Swampcandy’s vast pallette. As in his previous work, many of his songs bring to mind the sounds of the Mississippi Delta, while other selections on this album stray into abstract territories.” So much more than the blues, this is American roots music at its most authentic.
Positive Drinkin’ is a perfect example – a whiskey-drenched take on heartache, loss and revenge – and one of the best songs of the year.
