From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, The Suitcase Junket conjures an entirely new sound in this essential rock collection, Pile Driver.

The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one-man band. His is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, with wild double pitches of throat singing. From The Suitcase Junket's penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes this full-length album -- his debut at Signature Sounds -- of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance-hall festivity, played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage.

Lauren June:
Drawing inspiration from
artists as diverse as Chris Pureka, Tracy Chapman, and Kris Kristofferson, acoustic singer-songwriter Lauren June creates darkly affecting music seasoned with irony--songs of heartache, and songs that turn heartache on its head. She sings and plays with an ease that seems to grow naturally out of the stories her songs tell. Born and raised in Ben Lomond, CA, this is Lauren June's first appearance at The Crepe Place.
