"Jank City Shakedown" is the sophomore release of Dallas-based roots-rockers Somebody's Darling. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in Feb. 2012, the band went into the studio with Grammy award-winning engineer Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Loretta Lynn, etc.) and recorded the entire album in 10 days. Over the three years of gigging, writing and demoing that led up to the recording of the album, the band started to think of themselves as residents of a 'Jank City'--sort of a broke down artist community that's colorful but stressful, rewarding yet maddening, and most of all hilarious. Whenever a tire pops on the way to a gig, or a rent checks bounces or something, it's just a Jank City Shakedown. It takes a lot of faith and commitment to keep a rock 'n roll band going for 5 years, and SD is proud to keep writing tunes and connecting with friends and fans across the country. Hope you dig it.
