Denney and The Jets served up their first two appetizers with "Bye Bye Queenie" and"Mama's Got The Blues" and now it's time for the whole hog. Starting today, American Songwriter will stream Mexican Coke (out April 8th on Burger Records/Limited Fanfare Records) in full until release day. The album is stuffed with wild songs of excess and hard times. Bandleader Chris Denney collaborated with Andrija Tokic (producer of Alabama Shakes' Boys and Girls) and Clear Plastic Masks to bring the debauchery to life. Denney proclaims, "I don't know what these songs are about or who they are about, but they aren't about me (wink wink). Hey, hey, hey. Smoke weed everyday." Mexican Coke is actually about all of us. From time to time, who doesn't like to have a drink or a smoke or a really, really bad night? Denney and The Jets will be your soundtrack for going off the rails or off the wagon.

PRAISE FOR MEXICAN COKE:
"Nashville bruisers Denney and the Jets make music that imagines the Rolling Stones circa-, hemmed in by a burger-a-day budget. You can hear undercurrents of country (there's a clearly discernible twang in that guitar) and soul (the foot-stomp rhythms and unmistakable sense of groove), all of them filtered through a loose-and-easy, garage-rock sensibility.
-- eMusic's Wondering Sound
"If there's one thing...Denney and the Jets do well, it's making Stones-y, drug-addled, Southern-fried juke-joint jams."
-- Nashville Scene
"...a heaping helping of southern friend, honky tonk rock 'n roll."
- Brooklyn Vegan
