If you somehow couldn’t tell, Roadside Graves new LP, My Son’s Home, is our favorite roots-based album of 2009. Period. Clocking in at an hour, in the span of 18 tracks, the record is a testament to the art of storytelling in the long-player format; something we are seeing less and less of in the ’00s. Beginning tomorrow, July 28th, the band is taking their show on the road, around the U.S., beginning in Wilmington, DE and ending in September at the Monolith Festival at Red Rocks, CO.  See this band live.
