|Leroy Powell & The Messengers The Overlords Of The Cosmic Revelation Limited Edition Clear Vinyl LP
;; The superb new album from Shooter Jennings’ guitarist and cast member of A&E’s “Crazy Hearts: Nashville,” Leroy Powell!
;; Available on both CD and Limited Edition Vinyl
• This highly acclaimed songwriter goes full blown space truckin’ rock with hints of classic ‘60s psychedelic fuzz to create an alt country album unlike anything on the planet - witness the melodic stomp of “Time Flies” or the hard boogie of “King Kong!”
• Elaborate art packaging includes a hand-drawn comic that tells the story of the album about a band of
space rebels on the run from the Cosmic Overlords who make a valuable ally at a lunar refueling stop, the
mysterious Kynkon a/k/a King Kong!
• Available on both CD and gorgeous vinyl with printed sleeve and insert!
“Half his riffs smell like beer and honky-tonks, while the other half sound like redneck cousins of Led Zeppelin” - Guitar Player Magazine
“Powell looked like a total cosmic snakeskin cowboy up to the feather in his black hat…they played
occasionally prog-leaning 16th-not boogie metal that flashed back to Cactus, Mountain, and Seventies Ted Nugent and ZZ Top. So when they sang about shaking hands with the devil and being born in a desert tornado and killing a six-pack just to watch it die and driving 90 miles an hour down dead-end streets, their instruments supported those claims.” - Rolling Stone
