Muddy Ruckus / The Low Cards
MUDDY RUCKUS is a duo of darkly inventive americana rock. Guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl, of Portland, Maine, play a grungy style of railroad indie punk blues and brimstone folk. The band blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound, despite their duo status. They season their music with 'in-your-face' lyrics salted by the eastern old ports and mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up.
The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus Darkly Inventive Americana. Muddy Ruckus was awarded Best in State of Maine 2015 by the New England Music Awards, and was nominated for 2017 Roots Act Of The Year by NEMA. Their second album, Pretty Bones, was awarded 2106 Album of the Year" by Red Line Roots. The band was also awarded 2017 "Rock N' Roller's of the Year" by RLR.
Muddy Ruckus just finished recording their third album 'Bellows To Mend' in Scarborough, ME at Bulkhead Studios, where they also recorded Pretty Bones. The new album includes eleven new songs that resonate deeply with the grit and intensity of the last album, but with more focus on the electric rock sound heard live at MR shows. The album was recorded in two weeks, mostly live, with just drums, guitar and vocals and will be released on June 1st of 2018. The tracks were mastered at Gateway Mastering in Portland, Maine. You can pre-order the album at pledgemusic.com.
The duo also released a 2 song EP "Awakening Enkindled" on August 23, 2017. The EP can be downloaded for free on Muddy Ruckus' bandcamp site.
