Slothtrop Records is pleased to announce the latest release from blue collar americana artist Jeff German "12 Fret Nights". This is German's third release with Slothtrop, but his first as a true solo artist. Jeff left his long time backing band the Blankety Blanks on the sideline and sequestered himself with some of the Midwest's best sidemen. The results can be summed up in one word – LOUD. Much more Neil Young then Neil Diamond and at least two parts Crazy Horse to one part Big Star, “12 Fret Nights” finds Jeff in a career sweet spot, showing younger artists where they should be headed by lighting the way.
