Love this track so much, I'm posting it twice: once on the news page and then again here just so you don't miss it.
A fifth-generation descendant of Wyoming homesteaders, Luke Bell is a ranch hand turned troubadour who has seen a lot of life in his 26 years. The singer-songwriter just released a new tune, "Sometimes," and it's one that you will want to give a listen. Bell says of the track: "I wrote this song a few years ago about the mixed feelings a person has when they leave something behind before they've decided whether it's the right thing to do or not. At the time I was living down in Texas and havin a ball of a time with good friends at places like The Hole in the Wall, The Broken Spoke and The White Horse, but grew restless and hit the road. I had it half written and sang it in the studio just foolin around- the band thought it was a blast to jam on so I finished it and we cut it in just a few takes if I remember right. It's a straight forward Bakersfield style Honky-Tonk-punk-rock-two-steppin-long-legged thoroughbred; nothin fancy, just fun."
Bell sounds like no one else out there right now yet he evokes the familiar sound of country icons from the past. There's not too many MUST listens that come along, "Sometimes" is one of them.
Listen to the track above or download the track for free via Bandcamp:

Brooklyn's Mail the Horse released their latest album, Planet Gates, in June of last year and are gearing up for a very busy 2016. Currently on tour, the quintet head to SXSW next week, and are confirmed for Firefly Music Festival in June.
If you haven't checked out Planet Gates yet, let "Flowers Keys & Gasoline" be your introduction. There's a throwback country bent to this shuffling keys filled tune that's infused with a bit of roots rock permeated by an overall 70's air.....that just works. Give a listen to "Flowers Keys & Gasoline" below.
The Mining Co._ bring a heartfelt and lush collection with their debut album Burning Sun & the Atomic Powers Within, out March 11th. Co-produced in Spain by lead singer Michael Gallagher with Paco Loco, Gallagher’s melodies and lyrics have a moodiness and a fragility alongside a depth and a warmth that seeps from the first track to the last. Listen to the title track below.

Featured in the 2015 short Neo Love Story, "Love Song" is an acoustic tale about the push and pull of love (and the crazy things that it makes you do) that's propelled by banjo, percussion and Reid's airy vocals.
