Promised Land Or Bust (CD)

Moreland & Arbuckle
May 6, 2016
Moreland & Arbuckle’s Alligator debut is as deep as Delta blues and heavy as thundering rock, as the band continues to wring hard-hitting, modern roots music from traditional forms.

Even when the throttle is pulled back for a loping folk-tinged ballad or a noir-ish blues worthy of Tom Waits, the band’s intensity and raw emotion...
