Tyler Jakes

Add Date: November 16 

Artist: Tyler Jakes 

Album: Burning Down the Underground 

Label: Self-released 

Genre: Folk, rock, blues 

Comments: The promoter describes Tyler Jakes as "the foremost purveyor of western-gothic cowpunk garage rock exotica," and that just about sums up the amount of stuff that Jakes tries to cram into Burning Down the Underground. Try two of the simpler, less cluttered tracks: the folk gem "South of Northern California Girl" and the blues-rock stomp "The Dregs."
