Big Bad Rooster (from the album Rolling in the Bramble available on Coke N Waffles Records)
Southern California embraces DIY attitudes in the music of string band Big Bad Rooster. Punk rock beats and sentiments are as much as part of the four-piece as guitar (Michael Solan), fiddle (Camilo Barahona), banjo (Gaspar Barahona), and upright bass (Tristan Cole-Falek). The title track barrels across Rolling in the Bramble, as the quartet double-time Dixieland strums for the good times in “Heart & Soul” while band namedropper “Big Bad Rooster” opens the album on hoots and bass thumps for its falsetto modern-day fairy tale. Rolling in the Bramble wraps strong-willed banjo notes around the confessional inspiration of “Turn It Around” and bids goodbye in the call/response harmonies of “Fare Thee Well” as Big Bad Rooster post some Blues into the Bluegrass of “Mailman” and feel the weight of the life and love balanced on “One Drop”.
