The Maldives :: Muscle For The Wing


Maldives--Muscle-For-The-Wing--CoverHet zou overdreven zijn om The Maldives te betitelen als de beste groep uit Seattle sinds Nirvana. Maar verdorie, wat zijn ze goed en wat hebben ze in Jason Dodson een enigmatische leider. Met hun tweede CD Muscle For The Wing plaatsen ze zich in de top van de Americana, waar ze nu The Avett Brothers en Wilco gezelschap houden. Melodieuze roots pop met buitengewoon scherpe randjes. Luister om te beginnen naar het nummer Blood On The Highway. Echt opzienbarend.

Described as having a transcendent live show by indie radio touchstone, KEXP, their debut full-length, 2009’s Listen to the Thunder (Mt. Fuji, produced by Grammy Award-winner Kory Kruckenberg), was the culmination of years of playing together at every kind of gig imaginable and a faithful document of who The Maldives are as a live band. This time around the band took a different approach by working with Shawn Simmons (The Head and The Heart, Grand Hallway, Lemolo) who brought the band’s assembled creativity together in a different way and explores their combined vision.
