Looking for some new music but don’t know where to start? Look no further. If you like Dr. Dog and Blitzen Trapper, J. Roddy Waltson and the Business could be your new favorite.

The group released its first self-titled album in 2010 and came out with a second album, Essential Tremors in 2013. Both albums share a bluesy feel with a southern rock twist. Their sound is very Americana, meaning they have such a classic American old blues feel to their music. Some of my favorite tracks include “Take It As It Comes,” “Don’t Break the Needle,” and “Boys Can Never Tell.”

Almost every track has a lightness about it that will just make you want to have a good time and dance. Some songs like “Boys Can Never Tell” are a bit slower but force you to stop what you’re doing and enjoy.
