Strange Americans
Strange Americans
It’s the kind of music that the Carhartt-wearing, hard-working, industrial beer-drinking, regular Americans would listen to — the ones who could end up on an episode of TV’s Dirty Jobs. It’s a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. It’s blue collar rock and roll and it’s something that Denver’s Strange Americans is crafting with both brawn and finesse, like a hot rod mechanic bringing back an old barn find.

In a sense, Strange Americans is rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.

Strange Americans first began in 2009 through a series of Craigslist ads and mutual acquaintances. The group, which released its much applauded debut full-length A Royal Battle in 2012, released its sophomore album That Kind of Luster in September of 2014 . The ten-song, 45-minute rocker showcases a band that has cultivated an authentic, raucous live show.

The most recent release, Borrow You, Brother — recorded with Matt Pence at The Echo Lab in Denton, TX — suggests Strange Americans reaching new heights: Their ability to weave new sounds and styles into their established classic, guitar-driven, blue-collar Americana rock speaks to the band’s creative strengths. They’re not going anywhere, nor is the grit and rubble that has defined rock and blues music since their earliest days.
