Chicago Americana/Rock outfit Trickshooter Social Club make the sort of warm, intelligent rock and roll that lumps them in with the likes of Wilco and The Black Keys, although on Boxcar Racer, which we’re delighted to premiere today on Backseat Mafia, there’s also just a whiff of the likes of The Rolling Stones and even B-52’s. Either way, with its supercharged chorus and the sort of riff/guitar work that gets even the meekest of indie kids worked up, it’s a thing to hang onto for the ride.

The bands Larry Liss told us exclusively “The opening sonic chaos sets the mood for “Boxcar Racer” – a story of life in shambles. And somehow finding the strength in the broken-barreling headlong into uncertainty, trying desperately not to have life repeat itself.”
