New Track: Kings of Lowertown – “Shotgun Preacher”
Soul king Mike Mackey’s project Kings of Lowertown released the first single off their new album 60 More Miles due out October 2013. The track, called “Shotgun Preacher” is a short but sweet preview of what to expect form the upcoming album, and boasts dirty sounding blues riffs along with distorted vocals. It seems that this song could have very well come right out of the heart of Nashville, but Pembroke native Mackey delivers a genuine style that intersects somewhere between Alabama 3, Tom Waits, and The Doors. Too bad The Sopranos is all over, because the song would have fit right in there. 60 More Miles will be the follow up to Kings of Lowertown’s first self-titled full length, which was featured on The Big Beat blog Best in Ottawa music 2012: 20 songs by 20 bands (Ottawa Citizen). Listen to the new track below.
