RF Shannon
Trickster Blues
Out May 4th, 2018 Buy the Album

Texas-based desert-blues outfit RF Shannon follow-up their 2017 debut here with Trickster Blues. Trusting creative instincts, the band demoed material in Marfa over four days and recorded it in two back in Lockhart, Texas. As a result, the dreamy, introspective Americana songs carry a freewheeling spirit. Frontman and songwriter Shane Renfro says the album's name speaks to "a sort of pure whimsical mischief, a dose of raw wild impulse that reminds you to laugh at whatever it is that's happening, or else it's laughing at you." The LP is out on Cosmic Dreamer.
