A short while back, IndiePulse Music Magazine did a review of the new album Mudstomp Tapes by Stone Stanley, in which we said “ Mudstomp Tapes by Stone Stanley is a down home romp through blues and southern style influenced music, from the beginning, it rocks.” admittedly, it is not often we refer back to a quote we purveyed to illustrate our appreciation for an artist and their work, but we feel that this is worth the manner to do so!
Stone Stanley’s new Video for the track “The Bitter End” from his recent album release Mudstomp Tapes is a short but sweet piece of cinematography. Stone Stanley is the musical project of singer/songwriter Jason Trombley, based out of Hesperia California, a high desert community in San Bernardino County, some consider the last bastions of “The Wild West” Rooted in blues, rock and folk, the Stone Stanley musical experience is eclectic and oozing with Americana. He has taken his music, in this video to the very6 next and ultimate level, and it is superb.
In this video, the artist pays homage to the “America” that is not often seen, the dusty roads, the “four corners” and the “Devil’s Highway”, it reminds me of movies that convey a troubled life, a man that does what he can to get by, brings movies like “Oh Brother, Where Art’ Thou” to mind, and the crossroads where one makes a deal with the devil.
I also love that the Suitcase he carries gets bigger, and bigger, until he abandons it, could that suitcase symbolize his troubles, building up one after the other until he realizes that his “Pack of Troubles” is what’s holding him behind? There is a lot of very powerful symbology, but more so there is a great song and some fabulous talent in Stone Stanley’s craft.
