State Champion – Stale Champagne

State Champion are a breath of fresh air, their brand of roots-garage rock is both engaging and refreshing, the band out of  Louisville Kentucky are Ryan Davis (vocal, keys, guitar), Sabrina Rush (violin, banjo ,mandolin), Aaron Osbourne (drums) and Mikie Poland (bass) and their latest recording Stale Champagne is set for a vinyl only release on January 26th, unfortunately their earlier recordings are out of print, which is a shame as on the strength of this début full length LP I would love to hear them.

The album runs to 8 tracks and around three-quarters of an hour, perfect for it’s vinyl pressing which will be available through Sophomore Lounge Records, here’s my favourite track from the album Come See What I Have Done to tempt you, the whole album feels thrown together – but in a good way, it’s alive and has that visceral quality and purity you find in live recording’s, thoroughly enjoyable.
