Andy Ketch: Scamperhouse

Scamperhouse cover art
Scamperhouse is the debut album from Chicago singer/songwriter Andy Ketch. The music press has continued to call 2015 the year of the singer/songwriter and this seems to be true on some level. We've all been privileged to hear superlative works from Josh Tillman, Jessica Pratt, Jose Gonzalez and Justin Townes Earl to name a few. This debut by Ketch is like none of those. It is the punk equivalent of the genre. Underproduced, underperformed, and totally authentic, in a way that hasn't been seen since Bob Dylan first showed up in NYC, telling everyone he knew Woody Guthrie (he didn't). Just check this album out, you'll be glad you did. Stream and download Scamperhouse at the link below.
