“Bring the Flood” – Derek Hoke

Okay, this post is not a single song. It’s a full record.

I have a (really good) bad habit of being unable to choose just one song from a new favorite artist. But hey, the more we listen, the more Milk Crater can donate to charity. So the way I see it, we all stand to benefit from my bad habit.

…Don’t expect that excuse to work for any of your vices, homie.

Derek Hoke‘s style reaches a high ground between modern country and psychedelic rock, on an island shared with acts like Sturgill Simpson and My Morning Jacket.

His ability to seamlessly blend southern influence with slightly haunting rock riffs gives Bring the Flood a “still waters run deep” characteristic that is 100% worthy of a full front-to-back listen.
