DECOR

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.

      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.

      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.

      Thirteen Cities

        "Thirteen Cities" is Richmond Fontaine's 7th studio recording and their first album to be produced at the famous Wave Lab studios in Tucson, Arizona. It follows 2005's "The Fitzgerald", the last in a trilogy which featured "Winnemucca" and "Post To Wire" all of which Uncut magazine called 'Masterpieces' and two of which were Album Of The Month. "Thirteen Cities" features contributions from Calexico and Giant Sand's Howe Gelb, while retaining Willy's dark lyrics many of the songs are more upbeat and the band is fully back. Recording in Arizona has also given the album much more diverse instrumentation with accordions on the stirringly beautiful instrumental "El Tiradito" a horn section on the opener "Moving Back Home # 2" and organs, mandolins.

        Garden Tiger Moth

        Having previously been compared to The Go-betweens, The Chills and Palace Brothers, they've gone in a slightly more electronic, post-rock direction with this new album.
