The Deslondes :: Ways & Means

by

De afgelopen jaren moesten we het doen met prachtige soloplaten van groepsleden Sam Doores en Riley Downing, maar nu zijn The Deslondes terug met hun derde album. Het vijftal uit New Orleans overtreft met Ways & Means alle verwachtingen. Ze hebben met hun mix van oude rhythm & blues, country en zuidelijke soul een volstrekt eigen geluid gecreëerd. Diep doorleefd, relaxed en toch altijd spannend. Net als The Band hebben ze verschillende zangers, iedereen kan schrijven en met ieder liedje durven ze hun grenzen te verleggen. Veertien fantastische nummers zorgen er samen voor dat Ways & Means een serieuze kandidaat is voor de titel ‘beste plaat van 2022’.

The Deslondes are set to return with Ways & Means July 8th, 2022 via New West Records. The 14-song set is their first album in five years and follows 2017’s critically acclaimed Hurry Home. Ways & Means was produced by The Deslondes & their
longtime collaborator Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes) and was recorded at The Bombshelter in Nashville, TN. The album features Margo Price on the title track, as well as Twain and the multi-instrumentalist Billy Contreras on multiple songs as well. Long combining elements of early Stax, Sun, and Atlantic Records with the influence of a more raw, stripped-down sound gleaned off field recordings from Alan Lomax and the Mississippi Records catalog, the band also incorporate psychedelic flourishes that bring to mind the sonic experimentation of Joe Meek, Lee Hazlewood and the Velvet Underground. Infusing everything from saxophone, flute, and synth to string arrangements and a full drum kit for the first time, the group naturally progresses and
evolves in real-time on their third full-length offering
