C.W. Stoneking
Gon' Boogaloo

Australian revivalist C.W Stoneking offers his first full length since 2008. Gon' Boogaloo is his delta manifesto and features his very own rhythm section. Full of classic Mississippi blues and spooky cuts, Gon' Boogaloo is C.W S' take on his favorite blues men - I mean I knew the aussies can be a bit behind the times, but this is taking the piss. Out on vinyl LP and CD from King Hokum.

C.W. Stoneking
Jungle Blues

C.W. Stoneking is, at the time of writing, a living human being. However, Jungle Blues is one of those records that sounds like it was made by a dead person. We mean that in a literal sense - from its grainy recording quality to stories of ‘a poor shipwrecked soul stranded in the jungles of darkest Africa’ (hmm…), Jungle Blues is a perfect pastiche of several early-20th-century blues traditions.

C.W. Stoneking
King Hokum

Is Hokum a bad thing? It sounds like it might be a bad thing. Nevertheless, here’s Australian man out of time C.W. Stoneking come to spin us a few more yarns. Like literally every one of Stoneking’s LPs King Hokum sounds like it was made a hundred years ago, but this time Stoneking goes one further and comes up with a whole concept about some magic-realist nonsense going on way back when in the U.S. South. His ability to pastiche remains meticulous.
