Down to the Promised Land: 5 Years of Bloodshot Records [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Klinge
"There's a little place up Chicago way/where country punk came alive/They birthed it, nursed it, turned it loose/and now Bloodshot's turning five." So begins Robbie Fulks's musing on the Bloodshot saga "Bloodshot's Turning 5," and he should know: Fulks appeared on the label's first release, FOR A LIFE OF SIN: A COMPILATION OF INSURGENT CHICAGO COUNTRY, as did many of the artists on this essential compilation. DOWN TO THE PROMISED LAND celebrates the label's fifth anniversary with a bargain-priced double-disc set of 40 new tracks; it's a treat for fans and a perfect introduction for neophytes. Fulks, the Old 97's, and the Waco Brothers have defined the insurgent ...

"There's a little place up Chicago way/where country punk came alive/They birthed it, nursed it, turned it loose/and now Bloodshot's turning five." So begins Robbie Fulks's musing on the Bloodshot saga "Bloodshot's Turning 5," and he should know: Fulks appeared on the label's first release, FOR A LIFE OF SIN: A COMPILATION OF INSURGENT CHICAGO COUNTRY, as did many of the artists on this essential compilation. DOWN TO THE PROMISED LAND celebrates the label's fifth anniversary with a bargain-priced double-disc set of 40 new tracks; it's a treat for fans and a perfect introduction for neophytes. Fulks, the Old 97's, and the Waco Brothers have defined the insurgent country/cow-punk side of the alt-country genre; they're each represented here, as is the rest of the beer-soaked, unpretentious, rollicking Bloodshot roster and some like-minded comrades such as Giant Sand, Johnny Dowd, and Whiskeytown's Ryan Adams and Caitlin Cary. The songs careen from revved-up country punk the Meat Purveyors, Bare Jr. to overdriven old-time bluegrass Moonshine Willy, Split Lip Rayfield to heart-stopping ballads the wonderful Neko Case, Alejandro Escovedo, and Kelly Hogan to warped country soul Andre Williams duetting with Sally Timms on "Glue," which ends up spelled "G-L-E-U". Several of the cover versions attest to Bloodshot's inveterate sense of humor: The Wacos convert the Who's "Baba O'Riley" into a cow-punk bash, while the Unholy Trio remake Public Enemy's "Bring the Noise" as a rockabilly travesty. DOWN TO THE PROMISED LAND is country-punk heaven. Happy anniversary, Bloodshot.
All Music Guide - John Duffy
As independent record labels go, five years is a lifetime. Half a decade and over 70 releases after a late-night drunken tirade against the music industry gave it life, Chicago's Bloodshot Records has proven itself to be perhaps the most important Americana-no Depression-alt-country heap. The label has always prided itself in merging punk and country in the most unholy of matrimonies, and Down to the Promised Land proves the marriage works. Within the two-disc set's 40 tracks are excellent rock tunes from the likes of the Yahoos, the Waco Brothers (doing the Who's "Baba O'Riley"), aggressive cowpunk from the Roughnecks, and Trailer Bride, straight-up honky tonk from the Cornell Hurd Band and Nora O'Connor, and speedgrass from folks like the Meat Purveyors and Split Lip Rayfield. But the biggest moment? Without a doubt the Unholy Trio's low-fi cover of Public Enemy's "Bring the Noise," complete with strains of "Dixie" thrown in for good measure.
