The best Americana songs are those that are subtly familiar, with melody lines and lyrical nods that hint at the deep roots bringing forth strange new flowers. On their new album Come a Reckoning, The Stubborn Lovers demonstrate an intimate familiarity with the craggy contours of country music history, while managing to avoid the pitfalls of nostalgia or revivalism. The band’s evocative lyrics are awash in both spirituality and sensuality, literate without feeling showy. Their music may be anchored in train beats and twang but is never beholden to tradition, as the group melds pop songcraft, E Street swagger, the gutsy bravado of heartland rock, and air-tight vocal harmonies, complementing plenty of big choruses and undeniable hooks.
dKOTA’s new album, Red Shift, was recorded at the venerable Jackpot! Studios in Portland, Oregon, as well as The Map Room and the exclusive Halfling Studios, also in Portland. The album features a handful of local session talent, including the Bizarre Star Strings (Drive-by Truckers, The Decemberists, The Shins, Band of Horses, etc.). The album was meticulously engineered and mixed by Adam Lee (Portugal. The Man, The Decemberists, Built To Spill, etc.), and mastered at Eureka Mastering (STRFKR, Of Montreal, Local Natives, etc.).
