Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers' New Album Is Streaming; Hear It Before Their Sold-Out Show Tuesday
What a year it's been for local roots-rockers of distinction Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers, who've played every bar, saloon, roadhouse, festival, and general store in California, basically, and got most famous for the time they played a Hall & Oates cover in their van. The band celebrates with a big, sold-out show at the Regency Ballroom tomorrow night (Tuesday, Aug. 20). If you're going, you'd be smart to head over to Paste today and give a listen to the band's self-titled debut album, which is streaming in full. You've heard tastes of this album before (on this blog even -- we're fans), but hey, a full album is a full album. Alternatively, check out the new lyric video for "Hey Stranger," below. And good luck getting into the show tomorrow if you didn't get tickets.
Stream the new, self-titled album over at Paste. It's out for real Aug. 27 on Little Sur Records. Here's the "Hey Stranger" video:
