|This Russian roots rock band found its way to me via KFJC's Oscar Hocks. Their music is honest and straight forward fifties rockabilly, mostly in English and mostly covers, with a couple of Russian language originals, and one very cool instro. This is a crude recording, essentially ambient, but worth checking out if you like roots music at all.|

Track by Track Review
The Stockmen twang an intro that's a blend of rockabilly, rock 'n' roll, and surf. The melody riff is quite surfable, and the glissandos very cool. Mid tempo and aquatic, with a haunting guitar line and surf bass line. The sound is pretty murky, but "The Man With The Hunch" is nonetheless very cool.
