Roots-rockers Caleb Stine & The Brakemen will release their latest album, Time I Let It Go, Novemeber 7.  The band will celebrate the release of the album with a show at the Mobtown Ballroom in their hometown of Baltimore, MD.   Brooks Long & the Mad Dog No Good, and the Weisstronauts will open.

Time I Let It Go  was recorded when the band decamped to Vermont over the winter.   The recording process was captured by filmmaker Michael Patrick O’Leary and will be released as a documentary about the band and what it means to make music.

The new album showcases the band’s timeless style that is colored with deeply personal lyrics which lead one on a journey through the soul of American music.  Time I Let It Go  moves with ease from the foot-stomping funk of “Hey There Mister,” to the brooding intensity of “Edge of the Riverside,” to the unrestrained joy of simple pleasures in “Butter.”  It is an album for all four seasons and every mood.

Following his advice I began to type.  Despite the nonsensical sentences I put on the paper, the clacking of typewriter keys is a distinct sound, one long forgotten with the comparatively silent sound that emits from computer keyboards. And this intoxicating sound soon got me into the steady rhythm of writing.  While I was typing away, Stine grabbed his guitar and took the seat across the table from me.

When my typing slowed, he announced, “Here is the new one.”
