New music from The Canehill Engagement, 'Civilian Drag'

Posted By on Fri, Jun 13, 2014 at 10:24 AM


If you haven't bought your copy of the great and long-awaited debut single from The Canehilll Engagement, the Little Rock all-star league rock group featuring Burt Taggart from The Big Cats (etc.), Mulehead's Kevin Kerby, Jeremy Brasher and Brian Rodgers from The Moving Front and Jay Calhoun of Free Micah, you still have time. The 7", issued on gorgeous red vinyl, is shipping now from Max Recordings.

Brasher described the band's sound to this paper two years ago: “In the sort of American folk tradition, The Canehill Engagement basically borrows a lot from Southern ’80s college rock, as well as aspects of ‘cowpunk,’ which is a label music magazine people used to stick on the band X.”
