2FM027 Americana

Posted on Aug 01, 2017

2FM027 Americana draws together the eclectic flavours of America’s Folk & Roots music and reworks them into timeless tracks for today’s audience. Featuring sultry steel guitar wails and swaggering rock riffs, groovy bass licks, gentle banjo rolls and punchy percussion, this album will inspire you to pack your bags and hit the highway with the roof down, stopping only when the sun sets on the desert plains and neon signs flicker into life. Go on a whistle-stop tour of rural America, from the roadside biker bar of Dusty Highway to the southern homestead of Front Porch Nostalgia, and be immersed in the desolate outback portrayed in Snakeskin to life’s most simple joys evoked by Firefly Nights. Each track builds in layers to create rich electro-acoustic textures, and all sounds on the album were originally recorded in the studio: capturing the raw grit, gentle tenderness and unfettered energy of live playing.
