Everyone has a band they root for. An underdog. A band, who despite an enormous amount of talent and perseverance, remain obscure. Life in the minor leagues. The band I root for is Athens, Georgia’s Bloodkin. Practicing what they preach, for better or worse, for the past 15+ years of their creative career.
Some of the most haunted Southern literature never committed to paper.
Bloodkin is: religion, redemption, regret, a bar fight, pride, shame, spanish moss, bourbon, cornbread, a one-night stand, kudzu, driving at night, lust, cocaine, a roadside diner, salty tears, hangovers, the last drag, humidity, hope & salvation.
