Take This Town - Streaming & Digital Single

APPLE MUSIC / SPOTIFY / BANDCAMP

Consider It Correspondence and Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank have released “Take This Town” as a digital single. “Take This Town” was originally released  as part of the Hobo Nephews 2015 album American Shuffle

“Take This Town” is a rambling tale of realization, romance and desperation written by Teague Alexy and accentuated by Hobo Nephews rollicking Americana energy. 

“Said I ran a few tolls, couple red lights.

They got my picture on satellite. 

Tonight will be fond farewell,

Fore I’m off along the hard luck trail”  

The hilarious “Take This Town” video was directed by Truvio and features Hobo Nephews alongside Albert Einstein and Al Capone among others. 

“From the first cigar of Al Capone, 

To the last cigarette of Sherlock Holmes.  

Cops and robbers, friends and lovers, 

From one end of Babylon to the other.” 

“Take This Town” is available wherever digital  music is sold. American Shuffle vinyl available in our web store.

Teague Alexy debuted a new guitar and some new original material during an opening set for renowned singer/songwriter Haley Bonar at historic Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, MN.

 ”It’s a two-string cigar box style guitar built by Dave Lynas up on the hillside,” Teague told KUMD 103.3 Duluth after the show. “I met Dave at a jam session out in Holyoke and he invited me to come to his house in Duluth and try some of these strange guitars he was building. I didn’t know what to think of this one when I saw it, but I fell in love as soon as I put my hands on it. Even though I didn’t know how to play it, I could feel songs inside.”
