Mishka Shubaly, "The Only One Drinking Tonight," How To Make A Bad Situation Worse (Terra Soul/Stumptown)

7677957_lOur newest alt-country label, Stumptown Records, continues to expand their roster—recently bringing damaged Brooklyn troubadour Mishka Shubaly into the fold. His debut full-length, produced by Jay Braun (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Fiery Furnaces), arrives stocked with fitfully self-deprecating boozer's anthems—vicious, manful lyrics spat above staggering slide guitar—and first track "The Only One Drinking Tonight" should only tempt a growing thirst. He's not technically a Portland artist, but, after spending the last year touring the country, one'd be hard-pressed to guess Shubaly's current residence. And, as they say, drunkards are citizens of the world.
