The debut album from The Delines, Colfax is a 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. Released on April 28, Colfax will be preceded by a limited edition 7” single release for Record Store Day, and followed by a European tour in June which we should have details on very very soon.
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).
Jace Everett is over on these shore this week with shows in Sheffield at the Greystones on Thurs 30th, Newcastle – Cluny on the 1st and Glasgow Celtic Connections on Sunday the 2nd before he heads over to Norway.
Dan Stuart has a full UK tour starting after Easter and we will have dates posted here soon. His first book is out in April and the Arizona sessions cd will be released very soon.
