The Devil Makes Three :: Chains Are Broken

by
The Devil Makes Three uit Vermont is een van de meest originele bands van deze eeuw. Bluegrass, rock ‘n’ roll, ragtime, gospel, blues, sixties garage, pop, zelfs punk, het duikt allemaal op in hun nummers en zorgt ervoor dat ze live meer dan opwindend zijn. Chains Are Broken is de opvolger van de covers-CD Redemption & Ruin en bevat elf nieuwe door zanger/gitarist Pete Bernhard geschreven nummers. De gospel in Pray For Rain, de herlevende sixties in Paint My Face, het poppy Can’t Stop, stuk voor stuk geweldige nummers op een adembenemend goede plaat.


The power of words isn’t lost on longstanding Americana triumvirate The Devil Makes Three – Pete Bernhard, Lucia Turino, and Cooper McBean. For as much as they remain rooted in troubadour traditions of wandering folk, Delta blues, whiskey-soaked ragtime, and reckless rock ‘n’ roll, the band nods to the revolutionary unrest of author James Baldwin, the no-holds barred disillusionment of Ernest Hemingway, and Southern Gothic malaise of Flannery O’Connor.
In that respect, their sixth full-length and first of original material since 2013, Chains Are Broken (New West), resembles a dusty leather bound book of short stories from some bygone era.
