    Hi it’s Matt Sweeney, I produced the Country Westerns album.

    Here’s some other facts about Country Westerns, who I loved from the first time I saw them play: 

    Singer-guitarist and Atlanta native Joey Plunkett left NYC for Nashville 10 years ago, after making a name for himself in that city’s rock and roll underground as the leader of Brooklyn legends The Weight and hustling bass for Gentleman Jesse. 

    Nashville drummer and songwriter Brian Kotzur was the star of Harmony Korine’s “Trash Humpers”. Kotzur also wrote the film’s score. He was a member of the Silver Jews. 

    Country Westerns started as an outlet for Plunkett and Kotzur to play music almost in spite of being in the middle of Nashville’s hungry music scene. Their idea was to make “depressing songs with fun drums”. 

    Over a year they met up twice a week, made up songs that they liked, and played them to an audience of David Berman in Kotzur’s garage. They played parties sometimes. 

    This period was a kind of a state of grace – they liked writing and playing; they liked hearing Joey sing. Pressure was off. Still is, I guess. But anyway, everyone won. Sometimes they even played shows with a sax player. This is around when I saw them at Soft Junk, Nashville’s premier DIY party performance art space. 

    In Spring 2019, their esteemed colleague Sabrina Rush joined as a bass player because she’d never played bass before. She plays violin in State Champion and managed tours for bands you like. Her melodic approach to bass elevated the Country Westerns sound. 

    So David Berman encouraged them to leave the unmusical climate of Nashville to record a couple of songs with me at Strangeweather Studios in New York City (aka Music City) without a label, on their own dime. The idea was to capture the urgency of their live show. We all liked how it sounded so we dug into our pockets and did another session there a little while later. 

    Fat Possum heard the results, found our efforts “casually profound” and gave them a record deal. 

    I don’t know how to tell you about what it sounds or feels like, cuz that’s why it’s music. I’d say people who like raw and well written rock and roll songs along the lines of stuff by Dwight Twilley, Dead Moon, Wipers, The Saints, Replacements, Green On Red and that whole vibe should love this band. 

    There’s a rare emotional weight and poetry to Country Westerns’ music that hits the spot so hard for me. Hope you dig.

    Waltzer

    Alternative

    Waltzer isn't just a band because Waltzer, in fact, is also a TV show.

    Waltzer is also a character, a persona, and a songwriting collaboration unit. Waltzer is a one-woman project and even a sketch-comedy routine. Waltzer is nothing that you expect, but everything you didn't know you wanted. In short, Waltzer may be a moniker, but it contains ever-evolving multitudes.

    Time Traveler is Waltzer's debut full-length album and the end result of years of work by singer-songwriter Sophie Sputnik. As a former musical theater kid who found her armor fronting Florida punk-rock two-piece Killmama for several years, her songwriting has been informed by everyone from Erykah Badu to Roy Orbison. As such, Time Traveler melds a lifetime's worth of music loving to create a sound that's a little bit rockabilly, a little bit punk, and all of it wrapped up in an undeniably contemporary style. Its sonic contours may be firmly grounded in rock and roll's sweat-drenched history, but its worldview speaks to the worried world we all are trying to survive in.
