Rattlesnake Inn, the full-length debut from The Texas Red Legs, recently hit the streets, and the North Texas quartet has kindly offered up a fine cut from the album for your listening pleasure. Check it out...

Bonus mp3: The Texas Red Legs -- "Long Way to Lubbock"


Very reminiscent of The Band and Dylan--and that's not a bad thing at all. I dig Richard Davis' world weary vocals and that wall of (country) sound production. If the rest of Rattlesnake Inn is as pleasurable as this track, this could really be a local release worth picking up.

The band plays this weekend in Bandera, but will be back in our area April 6 as part of a cancer benefit show taking place at Club Dada.

"The Texas Red Legs Rattlesnake Inn (Self-released)"

"Long Way to Lubbock," the opening cut on this impressive debut, showcases the singing and songwriting acumen of Red Leg frontman Richard Davis. Dense and poignant, "Lubbock" is just one of the nine gems collected on Rattlesnake Inn, making it one of the surprise local releases of the year. Hell, even when Davis has the misguided chutzpah to title an original song "Tupelo Honey," he and his band have the ability to bring a new take to a classic theme.

Very reminiscent of The Band (not at all a bad thing), Davis and his Texas Red Legs forge together their own sturdy take on Americana, combining the passion of prime Steve Earle with the mystery of '70s-era Dylan. Produced by drummer Tomy Le Dudley, Rattlesnake Inn is as accomplished a first effort as one is likely to stumble upon; the singing is appropriately ramshackle, and the instruments fade in and out almost on cue as Davis details various countrified concerns, such as getting somewhere in a hurry ("Burnin' Down 35") or looking for love in all the wrong places ("She Fell in Love at the Jukebox").

As a songwriter, Davis' debut finds him on equal footing with both Rhett Miller and Brent Best. And from start to finish, Rattlesnake Inn delivers the alt-country goods with power, passion and (thankfully) absolutely no polish. - Dallas Observer
