New Country Rehab :: Ghost Of Your Charms


New Country Rehab CD 2013Ghost Of Your Charms, de tweede CD van de Canadese band New Country Rehab, verkent en overschrijdt de grenzen van de country. Liedjes die gaan over verlies en de dood, muziek die zijn inspiratie haalt bij Ennio Morricone en Calexico, maar ook bij Hank Williams, punk en de blues. Fantastische eigen nummers zoals Empty Room Blues en Home To You en twee waanzinnige covers: Williams’ Too Many Parties And Too Many Pals en de countryklassieker Image Of Me. Ghost Of Your Charms is een geweldige CD.

Ghost of Your Charms (Kelp, 2013) is a bold step forward from their 2011 self-titled debut. Working again with Toronto producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Ohbijou), NCR have stepped up their sonic palette, and the result is the sound of a band that has gotten very comfortable in their skin. Love, loss and tall tales of sordid characters inhabit the album’s eleven tracks, including reworkings of Hank Williams Sr.’s (“Too Many Parties”), and “Image of Me,” a Wayne Kemp country classic that Conway Twitty took to #1 in 1961.
