Shelby James and the Crying Shames

Gaslight Gardens

It sounds like a band name straight out of a 1950s teen movie - the type of group serenading a crowd of greasy-combed sock-hoppers while Sal Mineo mopes in the foreground. Although Shelby James and the Cryin' Shames is something of a throwback, the Phoenix act leans more toward a mixture of bar chords and acoustic ballads. Lyrically, the group claims to merge "traditional country themes with sentimentally drunk blues songs that celebrate the rich tapestry of the American rock and roll soundscape."
