The fifth release from Rocky Votolato, the brag and cuss, is out now on Barsuk Records. this time, Votolato comes with a full band that features James McAllister (Sufjan Stevens) on drums, Bill Herzog (Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter) on bass, Casey Foubert (Pedro the Lion) on electric guitar, banjo, mandolin and percussion, and Rick Steff (Catpower, Hank Williams, Jr.) on Hammond b3, piano, and accordion.
Magnet Magazines writes, "Votolato has a gift for making the bleakest misery sound inviting, with just enough sweetness to go down smooth and melodies so pretty they can almost make the pain go away."
A vinyl version is also available.
