The Delines

The Lost Duets

    New 7" single of songs not found elsewhere and exclusive to this release.

    Amy Boone and Willy Vlautin both love duets. Over the years Willy has written a few but so far they haven't fit on any of the Delines album. The wrong place at the wrong time sorta thing. The Golden State leans on the bands cowpunk roots dating back to Richmond Fontaine (Portland) and The Damnations(Austin). Willy brought it in to the band right just as they were drifting away from that sound. My Blood Bleeds The Darkest Blue was inspired by those great Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood duets. It has a real desert feel to it but at the time the Delines were working on The Sea Drift which was set on the Gulf Coast. So both are songs that the band loved but songs that were left orphaned and they thought they better give them a proper home before they got lost along the way.

    The Delines are: Amy Boone-vocals, Cory Gray-keyboards, trumpet, Sean Oldham- percussion, Freddy Trujillo-bass, Willy Vlautin-vocals, guitar, Tucker Jackson: pedal steel, Jenny Conlee-Drizos: accordion.

    The Delines

    The Imperial - 2022 Reissue

      The Delines second album, repressed on black vinyl.

      Where debut album Colfax was an experiment, The Imperial is the result of a year of touring, the solidification of the line up, and months of rehearsals. Recorded in Portland, Oregon and produced by John Morgan Askew, The Imperial shows us again why songwriter, Willy Vlautin became so enamored with Amy Boone's voice. The combination of Vlautin's songs and Boone's voice creates a late night country soul world full of hopefulness and heartbreak.



      The Delines

      Colfax - 2022 Reissue

        The Delines debut album, repressed on black vinyl.

        The debut album from The Delines, Colfax is a stunning & timeless collection of songs with the intimacy of a midnight confessional. Like a beat-up Dusty Springfield after too many long nights working a dreary after-hours bar, Colfax has the skid row heart of Tom Waits, the street-tough weariness of early Rickie Lee Jones, and the cool, laid back sound of Mazzy Star.


        The Delines

        The Sea Drift

          The third album proper for 'Country-got-Soul's finest, The Delines, on Decor Records sees them exploring the US Gulf Coast, not far from where Amy Boone grew up. The songs in this cinematic opus all focus around this area and are inspired by when Amy asked Willy Vlautin to write her a song like Tony Joe White's 'Rainy Night In Georgia' after her tragic accident being hit by a car in 2016 and her 3 year recovery. This follows on from 2019's The Imperial which was number one in the UK official AMA charts for two weeks. Written and partially recorded before lock down the rest of the album was finished last Summer, produced by John Morgan Askew at his Bocce studios just outside of Portland, Oregon.

          The album features the classic line-up of the band with Amy Boone (vocals), Willy Vlautin (guitars, vocals, songwriting), Freddy Trujillo (bass), Sean Oldham (drums, vocals) and Cory Gray (keyboards, trumpet and arrangements) doing some of their finest work yet.

            Jerry Joseph

            The Beautiful Madness

              Featuring Drive By Truckers as backing band with Jason Isbell. European tour with Drive By Truckers. Exclusive European release. Who the hell is Jerry Joseph? Well Patterson Hood and Jason Isbell think he is one of the best songwriters and performers ever, so much so they backed him up on his newest album. While he has been flying just under the radar in the US he is unknown in Europe and that is all about to change. This is his first ever European release and will be three months ahead of the US release. Not only are Drive By Truckers the backing band on his upcoming tour but they also recorded the entire new album with Jerry as his backing band. Jason Isbell features on one of the key tracks 'Dead Confederate' and Patterson Hood also produced the entire record. While Jerry is a legend in the US he has never had a British release after playing for over 30 years - with the Truckers supporting him on many of his early shows having. Woody Harrelson is a long time fan whom followed Jerry on tour in his early days - with the pair even writing together.

              Jerry has toured the world playing in Japan, Australia, SE Asia, Latin and South America etc while remaining largely off the radar in the UK. His first major dates were supporting Richmond Fontaine on their farewell tour and now he returns for a European tour. This record was recorded at Matt Patton's studio, Dial Back Sound, in Water Valley, Mississippi with all the Truckers taking part. It is Jerry's strongest ever songwriting and written over a period of years while travelling the world, while Jerry also ran guitar school charities for children in the war zones of Iraq, Syria etc (a project which was recently covered by Rolling Stone US and France). His live shows are a force to be reckoned with, and he will be touring into 2021 throughout Europe.

              Eyelids

              The Accidental Falls

                On The Accidental Falls, Portland Oregon's Eyelids, one of rock's best-kept secrets, step firmly out from the considerable shadow cast by the band members' second-to-none pedigrees earned from time spent in Guided By Voices, The Decemberists, Stephen Malkmus and Elliott Smith's bands. Produced by REM iconoclast Peter Buck who also plays on the record with Tucker Martine (Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Neko Case) and Heba Kadry (Deerhunter, Bjork) who mixed and mastered the record respectively. Eyelids' fourth album finds the outfit as both stewards of a classic sound (Alex Chiltonites and disciples of early REM or later XTC will fall hard for this project) and accomplished artists propelling their craft to thrilling new heights.

                The Delines

                The Imperial

                  Led by vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations, TX), Cory Gray on keyboards, & horns, Tucker Jackson (The Minus 5) on pedal steel, as well as former Richmond Fontaine members: Sean Oldham, Freddie Trujillo, and Willy Vlautin. Vlautin, the acclaimed novelist and songwriter for Richmond Fontaine, has penned all ten tracks. Richmond Fontaine broke up in 2016 after touring Europe over 25 times and selling over 45,000 records. Décor will be putting out two singles before the album in January.

                  The Delines debut album, Colfax, surprised fans and critics alike. The band had only been together a week when they went into the studio and cut the record. Uncut gave it 9/10 stars and praised its "widescreen romanticism", calling it "the richest collection of songs Willy Vlautin has written." Evoking the feel of a beat up Dusty Springfield or a weary Rickie Lee Jones, Colfax made a dozen top ten records of the year lists and the Delines sold out venues in the UK & Ireland. The Guardian declared them the surprise hit of End of The Road Festival and they toured Europe three times off the LP. The Delines were in the midst of working on the follow up to 'Colfax; when singer, Amy Boone, was hit by a car while walking on a sidewalk in Austin, Texas. Both her legs were broken, she was hospitalized for months, and went on to have eight major surgeries. The band stopped completely and waited and hoped for her recovery. Now five years later, Amy is finally on the mend and The Delines are back with their sophomore effort, The Imperial.

                  Where Colfax was an experiment, The Imperial is the result of a year of touring, the solidification of the line up, and months of rehearsals. Recorded in Portland, Oregon and produced by John Morgan Askew, The Imperial shows us again why songwriter, Willy Vlautin became so enamored with Amy Boone's voice. The combination of Vlautin's songs and Boone's voice creates a late night country soul world full of hopefulness and heartbreak.

                  Northline

                    Richmond Fontaine and Deline's singer/songwriter, Willy Vlautin will release his fifth novel, 'Don't Skip Out On Me' on Feb 1 2018 . Decor Records have released a vinyl version of the soundtrack, along with this, the soundtrack to his previous novel "Northline" - previously only available as a CD supplied with the book.

                    Don't Skip Out On Me

                      Richmond Fontaine and Deline's singer/songwriter, Willy Vlautin will release his fifth novel, 'Don't Skip Out On Me' on Feb 1 2018. 

                      The Don't Skip Out on Me soundtrack was recorded early 2017 just after the band called it quits on their final European tour. 

                      Fernando

                      Save Me

                        Features Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Luther Russell, Jeff Lyster (Jayhawks, Eels) and 4 Richmond Fontaine members. Fernando's new mini album is a European exclusive and a blend of folk, psych and indie rock on Décor featuring 7 tracks with the lead track Save Me taken from his album Leave the Radio On, his 7th LP.

                        The CD is limited edition of 500 copies only and has exclusive tracks recorded for the last album sessions and other sessions with Spanish language tracks.

                        Hey Mr Ferryman is Mark Eitzel's tenth solo album, his first in three years, and the first full studio album recorded entirely in London. It was made at 355 Studios with Mercury Prize winner Bernard Butler (Suede, McAlmont & Butler). Butler produced and played all of the electric guitar, bass, and keyboard parts on the album. Hey Mr Ferryman features the vivid melodies long associated with Eitzel's former band American Music Club as well as Butler's distinctive guitar that serves to complement Eitzel's expressive vocals. Of that voice, Pitchfork once wrote: "If Leonard Cohen's voice is a story about the passage of time and Levon Helm's is a story about losing what is most precious to you, Eitzel's is about the circuitous roads we take in search of ourselves." Mark Eitzel has released over 15 albums of original material with American Music Club and as a solo artist. The Guardian has called him "America's greatest living lyricist," and Rolling Stone once gave him their Songwriter of the Year award.

                        STAFF COMMENTS

                        Barry says: Eitzel goes from the serene to the triumphant between one song to the next, the brilliant balladry of 'In My Role As Professional Singer And Ham' and the easy listening morose indie charms of 'An Answer' providing a soaring and stripped-back counterfoil to the more rocking pieces like the brilliant 'Mr Humphries'. A brilliantly balanced, and eminently listenable delight. Brilliant.

                        The Delines

                        Colfax

                          The debut album from The Delines, Colfax is a stunning & timeless collection of songs with the intimacy of a midnight confessional. Like a beat-up Dusty Springfield after too many long nights working a dreary after-hours bar, Colfax has the skid row heart of Tom Waits, the street-tough weariness of early Rickie Lee Jones, and the cool, laid back sound of Mazzy Star.

                          The Delines are led by vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations TX), alongside the keyboard work of Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) as well as fellow Portlanders Sean Oldham and songwriter/novelist Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine) and on pedal steel, Tucker Jackson (Minus 5). Vlautin is no stranger to critical acclaim in the UK, enjoying cult success and stellar reviews from the like of Uncut, The Observer, The Times and Q Magazine as the frontman of Portland alt-country outfit Richmond Fontaine. The seeds for Colfax were sown in 2012 when Vlautin, so beguiled by Boone's heartbreakingly longing, yet resilient voice, wrote an album worth songs and built a band around her. Recorded at Flora Recording and produced with John Askew (Dodos, Alela Diane) in Portland, Oregon, Colfax tells haunting, modern stories through the musical lens of soul and roots music of decades past.

                          Décor Records presents the second album by Sacri Cuori "Rosario". Sacri Cuori's sound has elements of Ennio Morricone, Nino Rota, Piero Piccioni, Calexico, Ry Cooder and Tom Waits (some of his band perform on this album), John Convertino (Calexico), Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders) and JD Foster (Green on Red) at the helm producing with Antonio. Think Spaghetti Western soundtracks crossed with desert rock and a bit of Nancy and Lee thrown in.

                          An operatically tragic tale is told in Richmond Fontaine's tenth studio album, The High Country. More than a concept piece, the Portland, Oregon four-piece have crafted a song-novel, in which a gripping tale is spun with fully fleshed-out characters, changing scenes, snippets of radio and spoken word passages. It's a spectacularly unique album housed in a digi-pack with full 8 page colour booklet.

                          Richmond Fontaine's frontman, Willy Vlautin, is a published novelist whose 2006 debut, The Motel Life, has just been turned into a major motion picture directed by the Polsky Brothers and starring Dakota Fanning, Stephen Dorff and Kris Kristofferson.

                          With Richmond Fontaine's latest album, he's combined that story-telling prowess with his songwriting gift to stunning effect. From stark, romantic ballads and dialogue sequences to raw Northwest garage rock and cinematic songscapes, this album sees Fontaine's musical trajectory soar far beyond their cowpunk roots, ably assisted by producer John Askew.

                          STAFF COMMENTS

                          Darryl says: More top quality Americana from Richmond Fontaine, with their tenth album. It's a bleak but absorbing tale that's spread across its 17 tracks, a 'tragic tale opera' if you like.
