Justine Covault (singer, songwriter, and guitarist) from Justine and the Unclean releases her alt-country debut, fueled on boot-stomping twang, Sun Records and rebel-rousing dive bars.
Imagine Justine’s infectious knack for punk rock anthems & power-pop songcraft channeled into a new alt-country trio. Just like early Cash, you hear that train-a-coming and-a-chugging, no drums needed as that standup bass is thumping to the beat right in the pocket and the lead guitar twangs with a dusty barroom ache. Justine’s signature voice carries the raw stories with a lonesome lilt, while tight harmonies bring the heartache home.
Her themes (love gone wrong, then right, then wrong again) are brought to life and laid bare, with veteran players Johnny Sciascia (Eilen Jewell, Cranktones, Jittery Jack) on upright bass and harmony vocals and Jim Scoppa (T.H. and the Wreckage, Stan Martin Band) on blistering tumbleweed guitar.
Cheap Vacation should find its way onto every hole in the wall jukebox awaiting your quarters as the bartender lines up the shots and you slam em’ down.
