L.A. Shit: Vinyl LP
L.A. Shit is the new LP from the punch-throwing, shit-kicking country outfit fronted by Fat Creeps bunder Gracie Jackson, featuring contributions from King Tuff, Emmett Kelley (Cairo Gang, Bonnie ”Prince™ Billy, Ty Segall Band), and Bobbie Lovesong.
GracieHorse weaves stories in her songs. On Eat Shit, her debut record with Wharf Cat, she takes us into the past half a decade of her life. We see her as a travelling nurse, living in a big blue expanse of Wyoming, dancing with a man in a crisp white Stetson, eating chicken wings in a hazmat suit, commenting on how strange a place like Los Angeles can be, how loaded it is with wannabe cowboys and fast food restaurants. It's a record of immaculate country music, the kind of stuff you'd put on blast in your truck as you drive down empty stretches of highway. It's also a vulnerable record, full of lyrics about the intensity of being alive, all told with a sense of humour and self-awareness.
L.A. Shit marks Gracie's return to music after a several year hiatus. While taking time off between 2015 and 2020 she kept busy with session work and singing live background vocals for Alex lzenberg, Color Green, Sonny Kosmo, Banny Grove, and The Lentils. In addition to being Gracie's own major artistic output, L.A. Shit is a community effort. To make it, she enlisted countless friends in the Los Angeles Area, many of whom are touring and session musicians who were stuck at home during the pandemic. ”I'm grateful; she says of the experience, ”I'm proud that I get to show off my friends on this record; Indeed, LA. Sh’it is that kind of big family affair. Funny, heartbreaking, brutal - it's country as country can be.
