Memphis’ River City Tanlines have a new album called Coast to  Coast coming July 31st  on Big Legal Mess/Fat
Possum, which advises us “rifftastic guitar-driven rock songs
that incorporate ‘70s punk, proto garage rock and a big dose of southern boogie…
ten tracks of hook-ridden rock n’ roll from Memphis, giving new meaning to the
term Dirty South.”


Yeah, baby. It was cut with Bruce Watson (Hasil Adkins,
T-Model Ford, John Paul Keith) at his Dial Back Sound Studio.


This is singer Alicja Trout’s (Contaminated Records, her
recording studio, plus bands Alicja-pop, MouseRocket and Black Sunday; she’s
also a veteran of Lost Sounds with the lae Jay Reatard) first Tanlines record
since 2006. Her bandmates Terrrence Bishop and John Bonds have performed with
the likes of Jack Oblivian, R.L. Burnside, Jim Dandy & Black Oak Arkansas,
and Monsieur Jeffrey Evans. The Tanlines have toured extensively in North
American and Europe, and in 2009 they appeared
in Craig Brewer’s (Hustle and Flow, Black
Snake Moan
) Five Dollar Cover web-series (and soundtrack) for MTV.


Brewer also directed their roller derby-themed video for
“I’m Your Negative”. Check it out:
