Javi Garcia and the Cold Cold Ground Videos

Every now and then something comes along that you just can't shake. Something that you just can't deny. Whether it be an unexpected life changing experience, or a matter of being at the right place at the right time. Like it or not, it affects you. The common thread is that you experienced something unique and uncommon. That type of feeling is something you will take with you after digesting what Javi Garcia brings to the table.

In 2010, Javi Garcia a virtual unknown, unleashed his self produced debut double album A Southern Horror, which earned him 4 nominations at the Lone Star Music Awards. Album Of The Year, Emerging Artist Of The Year, & Album Art Of The Year (Original artwork by Javi Garcia). Two years later he set out to record The Great Controversy. His highly anticipated self produced sophomore effort. With the help of a successful pre-sale campaign raising over $17,000, the album is set for release April 9th, 2013. With many of his underground cult following believing his debut album A Southern Horror set a new standard for a new breed of progressive Americana, The Great Controversy undeniably raises the bar yet again. Truly embracing the nomadic spirit of Americana music and using it to further blur the line between singer-songwriter and uncompromising Rock & Roll. The album's momentum is relentless. The production is beautifully progressive and Garcia's songwriting has matured to a level that will even make his skeptics true believers.

"Javi Garcia's songs are written with an elegant cool darkness that rattles the bones, shakes the soul and bleeds with integrity. believe it." - Ray Wylie Hubbard

I normally go for the hip hop thing but a friend brought me to a show and this guy is extremely legit for what he does. Songs are great and lyrics are really cool. I bought this album which is saying a lot as I am not usually a fan of Americana music.

Listen to this record. It's like a refreshing slap in the face that will awaken you from the dull monotonous life most of us tend to lead. Very dark in tone yet very fun in execution.

This guy's a bad ass, all around..dig the style, the lyrical wit, the delivery, the everything. He's not afraid to be himself in a time where everyone wants to emulate someone else, so I commend him for that. Can't wait to hear the new album.

I love Javi Garcia’s live show. Love. Strong word, but I mean it. A Javi Garcia live performance with his band, The Cold Cold Ground, is one of the most exciting, vital shows you will see today. That being true, I approached “A Southern Horror” with some trepidation. Yes, I was skeert, because so many times the energy of great live music is lost in the studio (witness Band of Heathens), and Javi Garcia’s music without energy is kinda like Scarlett Johansson in baggy clothes – pretty nice, but you know you’re missing something. I am happy to report that “A Southern Horror” has all the energy of a Javi Garcia live show ... if not more! Toss in some brilliant guitar pieces by Luke Leverett, the unmistakable screaming harmonies of Austin Gilliam, and -- BONUS -- a guest vocal appearance by the great Mike McClure, and "A Southern Horror" satisfies on all levels. I am assuming, of course, that you are interested in unapologetically hard-driving, well-written rock-n-roll with occasional country overtones, that explores the darker side of life, right? Included with the new CD is a second disk, Javi's five-song EP "Madly In Anger”. “Madly In Anger” is not filler, but is, rather, another high-quality important piece of the Javi Garcia experience. “A Southern Horror/Madly In Anger” is the best album I’ve heard this year and it crowns Javi Garcia as the reigning King of AmeROCKana.

This is one of the heaviest albums I've heard in quite a long while. I played some guitar parts on this record so I know I can't be considered "objective," but believe me when I say that this album will smack you upside the head and give you the chills. You will succumb to the beating that these songs will give you, and you will beg for more. Rock and roll has a potential new savior, Javi Garcia.
