There’s a ramshackle charm to Branson T. Anderson’s music.

Folky with an eye for avant-pop songwriting, it’s the kind of music that seems like it developed in a kind of wonderful isolation, bits of forward-thinking arrangements lovingly scotch taped to a staunch traditionalism that somehow manages to be both exceedingly pleasing, while still being a challenging listen.

In the vein of some of the best modern americana songwriters around today like Shakey Graves, Good Old War, and the Bones of JR Jones, Branson T. Anderson is putting his own unique stamp on an ever -evolving sonic soundscape by returning to the genre’s homegrown roots. Not specifically in sound, but seemingly in very creation. This music developed quietly, in living rooms and front porches long before it hit record needles. And slowly, ever so slowly it became the kind of music that shook the hips of Elvis or stirred the firebrand-ish heartstrings of Bob Dylan.

“Moonshade”, to be released this Friday March 1st, is a quiet consistent tune that manages a upbeat, strolling pace with a carefree delivery, Anderson’s voice swinging from a sweet echo to a storyteller’s dictation. It’s that storytelling aspect to his songwriting, too, that lends an extra air of authenticity to his songwriting, again hearkening back to storytellers like Robert Johnson, Johnny Cash, or Big Bill Broonzy, with an updated americana flair.

It’s really, really great stuff and “Monnshade” premiere’s on March 1st.
