Bloodshot plans new music from Biram, Loveless

Thursday, March 9, 2023 – Bloodshot Records plans new releases this year as well as reissues, the label said Thursday.

This fall will see new records from returning Bloodshot artists Scott H. Biram, Lydia Loveless and Jason Hawk Harris.

Sometime mid-year, The Watson Twins will release new music along with the debut record from 81-year-old Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer Layng Martine Jr., "Music Man."

The releases will be the first new music from the label in more than two years. The alt.-country pioneers had internal issues involving the founders of the label about sexual harassment. The ultimate result was that the label was sold to Exceleration Music.

Biram said, "I'm really excited that my 13th record will be on the new Bloodshot Records. I'm pretty stoked to be part of it."

"I've been sitting on an album for a long time, and I'm thrilled to be part of the resurrection of this legendary label," Harris said.

Returning artist Loveless offered a simple take, "It will be great to be with a team that will pay me on time and promote the hell out of my record."

Bloodshot also will reissue popular long out-of-print albums alongside deep-cut favorites and albums never before released on vinyl. This campaign will revisit the catalog of the late Justin Townes Earle in collaboration with his estate.

The "Boy Crazy" EP tracks are real gems - lyrically compelling relationship tales with catchy melodies and radio-friendly choruses. "All The Time" is the perfect example. Loveless takes a gritty subject matter (a mistress coming to ...
CD review - Real There are certain parallels between Lydia Loveless and kd lang; brilliantly and beautifully expressive voices, great writers and performers and just enough twang to be considered country, but far enough outside the mainstream to be largely rejected by the genre's star making machinery. But where lang made her country bones by shifting from cow punk to a traditionally torchy gear and working with icon Owen Bradley and then succeeded on her own terms, Loveless has evolved within the indie ...
CD review - Somewhere Else On her follow-up to "Indestructible Machine," Ohio singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless sounds like she has taken everything great Stevie Nicks, Garrison Starr and Neko Case have managed to do over their careers and made them her own. The new full-length effort kicks off with "Really Wanna See You," a mid-tempo rocker veering from roots rock to polished pop. And from that moment on, Loveless takes you on a very enjoyable trek. Part of Loveless' appeal is her knowing each ...
