When we last talked to Fayetteville band Shulertown, we were kind of blown away by their diverse range of musical influences. Come this Friday, we’ll finally get to find out what a “western-adult-rock-with-carribean-folk-dark-country-rock-ska-grass” record sounds like.
The band is set to release their debut album, (appropriately titled) Free Range on Friday, March 18 at George’s Majestic Lounge.
The album is entirely self-recorded and self-produced, and according to Jason Reddecliff (guitar, vocals), the 12-song record is a reflection of the band’s eclectic tastes.
“One song will have a bluegrass feel or a ska feel, and then you’ll have one that’s straight up alt-country or cow punk,” he said. “Some of them have a mix of everything. They all end up rocking at one point or another, though.”
Reddecliff said he’s eager for the public to hear the record, which has been finished since late 2010.
