Texas band Texas Gentlemen are set to release new album Floor it!!! Friday 17th via New West Record. This is the band’s second full album since 2017 debut TX Jelly. The band returned to some of their comforts stops to record their upcoming LP including Muscle Shoals famed Fame Studios along with 4 more stops. With 4 tracks already out like the experimental “Easy St” psychedelic “Hard Rd” mellow “Train Avesta” groovy rock “Bare Maximum” and finally 70’s throwback “Ain’t Nothin’ New”
It goes without saying, Texas Gentlemen are a band, unlike any other band. Instead, they are untimely a time capsule of pure music that continues to spread joy with reminiscing cues. With co-frontmen Nik Lee & Daniel Creamer (who also plays guitar and keys) who trade tracks throughout the album along with Ryan Ake on guitar, Scott Edgar Lee, Jr. bass, and Aaron Haynes on drums (who has been replaced by former summer Paul Grass). The 13 track album is an exploration of sounds, similar to previous to their 2017 release. However, Floor it!!! finds the band coming together with fresh organic sounds and much more mature tales to tell. The album kicks off with a New Orleans vibe with a psychedelic twist, so if you’re missed Mardi Gras this year then “Veal Cutless” is a song to reminisce to, exploring the realms prog, heavy rock with “Dark at The End of The Tunnel” While “Last Call” draws an epic orchestral background as “Sing Me To Sleep” binds together a funk melody through Lee’s bass with Creamer and Ake, guitar adding a country twist. Meanwhile, “She Won’t” is like a dream collaboration between The Beatles and The Small Faces with the bands soaring guitar solo’s, sweet-sounding vocals. “Charlie’s House” is a throwback to early rock n roll hair bands with touch R&B tunes that fill the soul. The final track, which is the title track “Floor it!!!” hammers home the bands eclectic sound.
To see the least, Texas Gentlemen are an experimental band that we all need in our life. They encapsulate the true meaning of Texas music , via the cynical and humorous lyricism and ability to encompass generations of all aspects of early rock, heavy and prog rock all in all in while inducing, funk, soul early R&B melodies into a 13 track album. Texas Gentlemen don’t need a genre to pin them down instead they are their own genre, the Texas Gentlemen genre and I think that’s enough said.
