Miles Nielsen & the Rusted Hearts w/Strange Americans

Miles Nielsen & the Rusted Hearts

(Rockford, IL)

Rockford, IL-based Miles Nielsen has spent nearly a decade enthralling audiences with music that draws force from the prime years of Western-influenced rock music and classic ‘60s soul. Claiming influences as diverse as Otis Redding’s classic soul and Jellyfish’s cult power pop recordings.

Strange Americans

(Denver, CO)

It’s the kind of music that the Carhartt-wearing, hard-working, industrial beer-drinking, regular Americans would listen to — the ones who could end up on an episode of TV’s Dirty Jobs. It’s a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. It’s Americana rock and roll and it’s something that Denver’s Strange Americans are crafting with both brawn and finesse, like a hot rod mechanic bringing back an old barn find.

In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile — straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion — the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.

Strange Americans have two full length records, Royal Battle (2012), and That Kind of Luster (2014), along with the 7″ Vinyl Places (2015). Borrow You, Brother is the next full length album expected in the near future and recorded with Echo Lab engineer and producer Matt Pence (Centro-matic, Justin Townes Earle).
