Engineer/co-producer Jim Vollentine (Spoon, White Rabbits, ...And You’ ll Know Us by the Trail of Dead) helped the album’ s diversity sound coherent, adding unique touches such as mellotron and drum machines to the loping rockabilly of tracks like “All I’ m Asking.”The term “Americana” was practically invented to describe The Band of Heathens’ approach, which has mutated almost as much as the genre to which they’ re identified. And while the Rolling Stones and The Beatles remain touchstones on songs like “Sugar Queen” and “Deep Is Love,” respectively, influences as diverse as Sly and the Family Stone (in the psychedelic fuzz-tones of “Daddy Long Legs”) and Latin music (“Road Dust Wheels”) also rear their heads. Literary inspirations also come into play, ranging from a character in Sylvia Plath’ s TheBell Jar depicted in as a strutting cougar in “Sugar Queen” (“She even talks dirty/When she’ s on her knees to pray”) to Tom Standage’ s A History of the World in Six Glasses, which recounts how beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea and Coca-Cola have shaped culture and civilization to modern times (“Trouble Came Early”). Duende is The Band of Heathens playing to their strengths, unapologetically constructed as an old-school 10-track, two-sided vinyl album (which it will be released as, with a second disc encompassing four songs from their Green Grass EP released earlier this year). With Duende, the proof is in the results. Let them change your mind.
The Watters have crafted their one of a kind sound by traveling around the country soaking up their habitats. Having lived in Sedona, Los Angeles, Denver, Nashville and now Austin, their sound is as eclectic as the places they’ve lived. Seamlessly blending Americana, Soul, Rock, Gypsy Jazz and Funk they have been described as “Fleetwood Mac with a horn section.” Daniel and Jenna have collaborated on seven albums together under various monikers and released their debut record, Great Unknown, as “The Watters” in 2016. They are currently producing their sophomore release, due in early 2018.
The Watters have garnered a devoted fan base through their high-energy performances, well-crafted songwriting, stirring vocals and road-weathered musicianship. For The Watters, life and music are one, their journey together being their greatest muse.
