The Suitcase Junket

Leverett, MA

From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, The Suitcase Junket conjures an entirely new sound in this essential rock collection, “Pile Driver.”

The Suitcase Junket is the creation of Matt Lorenz: an artist, tinkerer, swamp Yankee and one-man band. His is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar with wild double pitches of throat singing. From The Suitcase Junket's penchant for thrift and ingenuity comes this full-length album – Lorenz’s debut at Signature Sounds -- of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance-hall festivity. The songs are played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard and an overhead compartment worth of luggage.
