Hailing from Raleigh, NC, American Aquarium’s southern musical perspective is a blend of honest songwriting, an unwavering work ethic, and a genuine love of rock & roll. Whether you call it alt-country, Americana, or roots rock, one thing is for certain: Their music is a fresh voice that borrows from many forms of the American songbook. 26-year old songwriter and band leader, BJ Barham, brings songs to the five other band mates who breathe life into a performance that is equal parts Springsteen-esque rock bravado, old-school country lyrical heartbreak, and indie-rock introspection. From the college coeds to tattooed bikers and hipsters, the band has demonstrated their ability to cross boundaries. With 4 years, 5 albums, and well over 600 shows under their belts, American Aquarium is the continuance of the road warrior meets studio craftsman ethic that has long been a part of the rock & roll and country music cultures. They are a band and crew that spend most of their lives between a van on the road and stages all across the country. Their collaboration forms a wholly new and polished version of what Americana might start to look like in the years to come.

Another rock'n album by a great band. Unforgettable lyrics. Produced by Jason Isbell.

Ok, so the album is produced by Jason Isbell. That alone had me intrigued. And Lone Star Music recommended it? Put me down for 1 please. But holy hell. After listening to this, it exceeded every possible expectation I could have had. Truly remarkable and better, in my opinion, than even Mr. Isbell's latest effort (high praise, indeed). I can't wait to go through their discography. Look our for an American Aquarium order, LSM. Home run on this rec...
