New York City-based Americana roots rock trio Ten Ton Man releases their latest single “The Drinking Song” off of their debut self-titled album, independently released in November 2012 (Ten Ton Man Records). Recommended for fans of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Lou Reed and Johnny Cash, Ten Ton Man is comprised of frontman Paul Livornese on lead vocals and guitar, Paul Triff on drums and Paul Dugan on bass. “The Drinking Song” is the fourth of ten tracks on the first Ten Ton Man release that offers a minimal, gritty, yet musically eclectic collection of songs with a lyrically dark slant.
Country music is something that is constantly being discussed, even here in the big bad North. While some artists have become too heavy or too poppy in recent years, it appears that Jason Charles Miller and Co have figured out how they can add different elements to their music and still retain the same country core in their songs with their latest release, Natural Born Killer.
The album opener, “Devil’s Whiskey”, driven by banjo and rock n roll guitar parts gets people ready for the rest of the record, where you will see flavors from both worlds. The album touches on a variety of song styles including a twangy song for all of the country fans (“You Get What You Pay For”), a drinking song (“Natural Born Killer”) and a song to cry in your beer to (“Here to Kill the Pain”). As a guitar nerd, I have to say that “Raise a Little Hell with an Angel” is a fun country guitar driven song that guitar players will appreciate. Miller’s vocals are capable of being very dynamic, which is important when mixing different genres. He makes it clear that he isn’t Gene Autrey’s country singer, but he is still true to his country influences. His voice is easy to follow, and there are songs on this that are clearly meant to have crowds packed in to country bars singing along to them.
If you like country music at all, be it the ballads, the drinking songs (happy or sad), the party songs, the love songs, anything, at least a few songs on this album will be well worth your listening.
Hearts pumping, voices raised, fists in the air: this is what The Welch Boys sound like. Coming out of Boston with a blue collar punk sound, their newest album Bring Back The Fight is a boxing match from start to finish, throwing punches and kicking down doors, all in the name of brotherhood and a good time.

Volleyball is so low on this list as it tends to be everyone’s least favorite sport growing up. Hell, even in adult hood; but as something to play while drinking during the holidays, it’s great. I’m shocked i haven’t really heard of any beer leagues for volleyball as it seems like one of the easier sports to play whilst drinking. With a full team (I seem to remember 9 people; 3 rows of 3), there is very little moving around and the only risks are looking like a fool missing the serve and puking after taking a good hit from a spiked ball.
