J.Tex & The Volunteers New Album Out January 30

January 28, 2015 Comments off

J.Tex & The Volunteers – Old Ways vs New Days

See the brand new video from the song “Ship Coming In” from the album

The final result is ten finely crafted songs, recorded together with guest musician Bebe Risenfors (who played with Tom Waits), and of course the Volunteers, Tue Lund Christensen on bass and Jason Bedard on drums.

J.Tex was born in Detroit and raised in Denmark, he feels quite at home in both in the United States, where he has many musical collaborators, and in Copenhagen, where he lives today.

He is very much part of the Southern Swedish rock’n’roll scene, where a love of music, vintage American cars, old motorcycles, vintage clothing and the shine of well greased hair is very much a way of life.

The best of USA, Denmark and Sweden come together on this, the coolest album release this winter!

press2_lo”A strange highly original, cleverly constructed and
loose take on the genre.”
– Mike Morrison

”Heptown has a truly impressive feel for roots and
rockabilly music and the know how to pick their band.
J.Tex & The Volunteers is another great Heptown act.”
– Buster Fayte

”At times it’s like Seasick Steve meets Cab Calloway, others it’s more Tom Waits meets
Maurice Chevalier. It’s certainly different, but most importantly, it’s wonderful.”
– Music People

The Don Darlings New Album Is Out

October 31, 2014 Comments off
The re-release is upon us!!

The Don Darlings –  “The Don Darlings”
NEW ALBUM CD/LP – OUT NOW (Oct. 31)
*Dark Southern Americana
*Recorded in Paul-Lincke Studios in Berlin
*
Don Alsterberg (Graveyard, Junip) have mixed the album

Like a dying heart at the bottom of a muddy black hole, The Don Darlings pump forth grinding sorrow with a confident genuineness that would probably impress both Nick Cave and Tom Waits alike. This is a very successful hybrid of the blackest soul of country with the hardest genres of Central Europe from the 80’s, with one foot in Dallas and the other in Berlin.”

These words come from a review of a live show the band performed at Way Out West-festival in 2011. By this time the band had received roaring reviews for their debut album, The Shortest Straw, which helped propel them onto the end of the year “best of ” lists in native Sweden, like Sonic and Dagens Skiva. They had also already gone on several European tours.

 The Don Darlings hailed sound has been associated with the genre called Dark Southern Americana, where Sergio Leone and Quentin Tarantino bloody knuckles over direction while Waits and Cave complete the soundtrack. Text and music become intertwined and every song proposes the possibility of a new cinematic experience.

With the prospect of new record round the corner, the band followed their analogue dreams. They decided to record at Paul-Lincke Studios in Kreuzberg, Berlin as well as bring in Don Alsterberg (Graveyard, Junip) to mix the album and bring it all back home. The record cracks and sparkles, rustling forward through a fateful musical landscape where troubled love meets madness. While the debut record directly reflected what the band delivered on stage, this record manifests something more subtle and pensive. The dark undertones have become more prominent. The disharmonies more apparent. The Don Darlings are going to warm many souls this fall or, at the very least, make them more restless.
