Review for Abe Partridge:
Partridge is one of the most respected songwriters on the burgeoning Mobile music scene. Cotton Fields and Blood For Days is his second full-length recording and the follow up to his self-released debut, White Trash Lipstick. Ranging from the earthy to the surreal, from the spiritual light to the depths of depression, the eight original songs on this new CD come together with a gripping intensity. Partridge draws listeners in with a combination of southern gothic storytelling and a dark humor reminiscent of the late Townes Van Zandt – delivered in a gravelly tone that conjures up images of Tom Waits in his barstool warming days. The album closes with a stirring rendition of the traditional song "Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down" that would make Screamin' Jay Hawkins proud.
Skate Mountain Records is based in Mobile and was founded in 2016 by film and music producers Scott and Kate Lumpkin. It is distributed by The Orchard (digtal) and Burnside Distribution (physical). In addition to Abe Partridge, the roster includes Avi Jacob, Jimmy Lumpkin & The Revival, The Red Clay Strays and The Underhill Family Orchestra.
