If you’ve been waiting patiently as I have for the impending release of the new Brother Hawk record, Affairs of Plain Living, here is a little bit of news. The band’s record release show, originally scheduled for last Sunday, has been moved to Saturday, November 17 at the Basement. Now, while that may mean that we’ll all have to wait another six weeks to get our hands on a copy of the record, it’s entirely possible that the group may decide to make it available for streaming or download on their Bandcamp page sometime soon. Let’s all keep or fingers crossed, shall we?
In the meantime, the boys have been generous to drop yet another cut from the upcoming six-song effort, this one called “Have Love, Will Travel.” The band doesn’t tread any new ground here, but the track’s still plenty good, delivering everything you’d want and expect from a Brother Hawk jam — big soulful vocals, bluesy grooves and a blazing guitar solo made to send shivers down your spine. Check it out below.
