California roots rocker Mike Jacoby returns with the release of his third solo album "Long Beach Calling" on August 2nd. It's a homage to the town of Long Beach, CA in the same vein as The Clash's "London Calling." The new eleven song release begins with the title song, "Long Beach Calling," which gets the energy flowing right away with a rockabilly swagger. Mike adds a surf-style guitar to "Here And Now," while "Your Love Song" carries a nostalgic west coast country/pop vibe. Next, he dives into the blues of "Know Right Away," before picking the energy back up with the swinging rhythm of "Hangers (A Christmas Tale)." Mike Jacoby finishes up his new album with the straight up rock vibe of "Play Like Richards" (inspired by Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger") and the mellow sun setting groove of "Long Live The King."

Also arriving August 2nd is the latest release from Nashville roots rockers, The Royal Hounds. Their new album "Low Class Songs For High Class People" features ten tracks with a bonus cover of Stan Jones' "Ghost Riders In The Sky." The band gets things hopping right away with the addictive rockabilly swing of "The Walk" and the playful country-style lyrics of "Whackity Do." The Royal Hounds add the addictive surf guitar instrumental "Pororoca," before taking the energy up a notch with the punk-like energy of "Tweakers From Outer Space." They go all-out country on the honky-tonk vibe of "Road Scholar," before finishing their new album with the fun, classic country sound of "Chinese Buffet."
