Craig Marshall "Popular Crimes"

Hip hello from Austin.

Since he moved from Syracuse to Texas more than a decade ago, Craig Marshall has made a nice name for himself as the front man for the Austin band The Lucky Strikes.

"Popular Crimes" is his first solo disc. The former member of Syracuse rockabilly-country-rock band The Delta Rays is going in much the same direction of his former band mate in that group, Maura Kennedy.
Marshall's 10 songs on "Popular Crimes" are bright, bouncy and extremely catchy.

Like the Kennedys, Marshall's bouncy sound can seem as if it had come off the turntables of years past, with solid craftsmanship lyrically and musically.

From the first cut, the racing "Desperately" and on down the road, it's obvious that Marshall's poppin' fresh.

"Popular Crimes" has 10 songs and runs 38:11.

Put it on when: You want a peek at where Marshall's music has traveled since his Syracuse rockabilly days. The view is lush - pop filled with catchy hooks and friendly persuasions.
