Arriving in early 2018 is the brand new album from Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst titled "Sometimes Jesse James." In the past five years, the band has received accolades from Country Music Television (CMT) and Music Connection Magazine and continue to gain prominence with their 8th studio album. This new 6-song release begins with the guitar boogie shuffle of "Down" as the music is sure to get your blood pumping. Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst showcase their softer side with the country ballad "The Best Day Of Our Lives," then they bring on the blues with "The Call It Love." The album heads toward the end with the steady pace of "Born To Lose Blues," which according to Casper has been the writing board for about "four or five years" and the Mexican ballad "Mi Sueno, Mi Dolor."

From the far out reaches of space comes the latest release from Bonsai Universe. The band is the brainchild of musician Woody Aplanalp and his new album "Moonstream" is performed, produced and mixed by himself. Aplanalp has worked with well-established artists like Bobby Womack, Lauryn Hill and Aloe Blacc, and he has taken those experiences into his new 13-song release. The album begins with the steady electronic folk output of the title-song "Moonstream." His songs take on a more mainstream vibe with the country tones of "Am I Good Enough" and the folk rock appeal of "Walking With My Eyes Closed." He goes back to the more experimental, keyboard-filled music of "Why Are My Dreams?," then he gets an acoustic, island-flair going with "Sweet Exaggeration." The album finishes with the gentle-touch of "A Lot Of Nerve," the atmospheric drifting of "Too Real" and the electric folk appeal of "Starstream."
