[SATURDAY-NIGHT FOLK] The Emmy-winning cast of NBC’s Friday Night Lights is the last place one would expect to find a lo-fi, flat-picking folkist like Alejandro Rose-Garcia. Performing under the solo moniker Shakey Graves since his phenomenal 2011 debut, Roll the Bones, the Austin native, who briefly played Julie Taylor’s love interest “the Swede” on the cult-favorite football drama, has become a sleeper star of the modern folk world via shuffling blues guitar and a kick drum manufactured from an old suitcase. His latest EP, Donor Blues, features sparse arrangements akin to Lead Belly, each warmed with a mild distortion only an 8-track reel-to-reel could muster.
