It’s been a long time comin’, but the Albany cowpunksters are finally delivering their sophomore album, “A Distant Sound.” Led by the omni-present Howe Glassman (who also runs Valentine’s Music Hall and hosts “The Fabulous Sounds” on WEXT-FM), the band brings their latest recruit (pedal steel player Roger Noyes) and their beer-battered twang ‘n’ roll sound to Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs at 8pm on Saturday (March 10) in celebration of the release of their long-awaited follow-up to “Trouble Comin’ Down.” Tix for the CD party at $12 in advance; $14 at the door.

But as they say in the commercials, BUT WAIT, There’s more… Grainbelt – which also features guitarist Jason Hughes, drummer Jimmy “The Kid” Kaufman and bassist Chris Blackwell – has also contributed a new tune to the benefit compilation album, “Chorus vs. Solos: A Tribute to Charlie Chesterman.” The compilation features covers of tunes penned by Scruffy the Cat bandleader Chesterman, who is recovering from a battle with cancer. The album is bursting with a whopping two dozen nuggets from such fab folks as Occasional Milkshake (featuring Hootie & the Blowfish’s Mark Bryan and the db’s Peter Holsapple), the Farewells, Jenny Dee & the Deelinquents, Letters to Cleo, Classic Ruins, the Ray Mason Band, Young Fresh Fellows and lots more. Grainbelt weighs in on a chugging rendition of “My Friend Ringo.”
