Audio samples up for upcoming Rounder CDs

Rounder Records has just uploaded audio samples for two new projects set for a June release.

Ron Block - DoorwayRon Block’s Doorway will hit on June 19. This is not really a bluegrass recording, but should be of interest to the many admirers of Ron’s musicianship and songwriting abilities.

For more on this project, read Brance’s interview with Ron from earlier this year.

The audio samples are available on the Rounder web site.

King Wilkie - Low Country SuiteAlso previewed online is Low Country Suite from King Wilkie. Also on the fringes of bluegrass music, this young band (named for Bill Monroe’s equine companion), is “developing an idiocratic new sound – a dramatic push into uncharted sonic terrain” as per Rounder’s description.

Samples for each of the 11 tracks are up at, and the band has four complete tracks for online listening on their MySpace page as well.

Low Country Suite is set for release on June 26.
