Roll the Bones (Sunday’s Best)

‘Roll the Bones’ by Shakey Graves   (June 4)

“Struggle all you like dear – Someday everybody dies alone”.  I’m not quite sure if I wrote that down absolutely word for word, but the general sentiment is, what we call, a universal truth; a universal truth that most choose to avoid.  It’s this brash sense of responsibility that puts the extra baggage on the Shakey Graves debut and gives it depth worth swimming in.  Never losing the battle to the expected, ‘Roll the Bones’ controls itself, controls the album, controls, possibly, the band.
