Secret Society

The promoter for tonight's show by Austin rockabilly swingers the Bellfuries recently dropped off a growler of fresh beer by the Mercury office. I'd like to tell you that these precious column inches can't be bought with free booze, but I'm worried that might dissuade other bands and promoters from trying a similar tactic. So, um, the Bellfuries... the Bellfuries inject a lot of stylistic breadth into their infectious roots-rock. Their press materials cite comparisons to Sam Cooke, the Beatles, and Roy Orbison, and believe it or not, I hear 'em all. They've received a ringing endorsement from none other than JD McPherson, who covered a Bellfuries song on Signs and Signifiers. The truth is that this band delivers a crisp, cool, refreshing take with an ample malt profile and a swift, delightfully hoppy kick and... sorry, I got distracted for a second. NED LANNAMANN
