Xpress Playlist: Roots and soul

Resonant Rogues

This week’s playlist includes tracks from two new local soul releases as well as a radio-ready Country hit-in-the-making from a Weaverville-based artist. Add some indie synth-pop, reggae and ragtime to the mix for a well rounded listen.

• “Red Sand” from the self-titled album by Slo_Gold, the project of keyboardist and engineer Jeff Knorr.

• “Life Is Good” by singer-songwriter Chad Mackey. Find the lyric video on his website.

• “Let Them Talk” from Warm Blanket by Dent May who just performed at The Mothlight.

• “Most Nice” from Swing Set by Resonant Rogues. They’ll be at White Horse Black Mountain on Thursday, Sept. 11; and at Cork and Keg on Friday, Sept. 19.

• “Downhome Sophisticate” from the album of the same name by Corey Harris, who plays Asheville Music Hall on Saturday, Sept. 6.

• “Been a Fool,” from Welcome to Soul City by The Secret B-Sides.
