However, it’s not the only song on the new LP with roots from years gone by. “Freight Train” was originally written in the late 1980’s by San Francisco band Sister Double Happiness, a song that chronicles the bleak realities faced by those suffering with AIDS/HIV. “There’s a...

The Pollies Broaden Out Their Southern Rock Sound on 'Transmissions'

None Much gets made of Pollies leader Jay Burgess's Muscle Shoals, Alabama roots.

But like a lot of modern Southern rock, the Pollies can't easily be tied down to any one school, be it big city, small town, college town, back porch, Shoals vibe, Florida swamp rock, or Memphis indie-by-way-of-Stax. In fact, if you want to namecheck Memphi...
