Barrelhouse Background: Also known as a juke joint or a bar or saloon. The term originates from the storage of barrels of alcohol that were often turned into tables around the bar. Barrelhouse’s were set up on the outskirts of town, often in ramshackle buildings or private houses, they offered food, drinks, dancing and gambling for weary workers. They also birthed many genre’s of Blues and provided a circuit for emerging artists to travel and perform. The owners would often tend bar themselves and usually make extra money selling groceries or moonshine to patrons, or providing cheap room and board.

    I like the music and the concept of the art to go with it, the treatment with the typography on the back cover could use some work though. Dope shit over all.
