The full-length album is a larger than life country album that drips with Milwaukee grit. Featuring pedal steels, washboards, organ and even a credited jaw harper (Cris Bissell), the album has all the standard elements in the classic honky-tonk sound but gives a Milwaukee spin with a unique punk rock style that the Good Land is known for.

Listen to album below and catch Beaumont James & the Wild Claims at Linneman’s Riverwest Inn for the album release show with S.S. WEB on November 30.

The members of Beaumont James & the Wild Claims are self-proclaimed “honky tonk heroes” serving fans of the “less-than-fine-things” featuring “clowns, floods, carnies, booze, and the like.” The group’s debut release, “Try Every Trick” reflects that pretty well. This louder-than-country band from Milwaukee released it earlier this month without reservations.
