Tangled String Studios is proud to present Belle Adair on Feb 2!
Their new album Tuscumbia, debuting on Jan 19, 2018, is rich with multi-part harmonies and chiming guitars, offering hints at times of southern California country and even vintage Britpop. Don’t miss this concert! Feel free to bring your own beverage of choice!
The breezy jangle of “Get Away,” the opening track off Belle Adair’s striking new album, Tuscumbia, might not be the first thing you’d expect to hear from an Alabama band named after a John Steinbeck reference. Combining mellow, atmospheric rock, and swirling, retro power-pop, it’s more Big Star than Swampers, but it’s an ideal gateway into the blissed-out world of Belle Adair— a group that manages to make even worry and isolation sound inviting.
Recorded at Muscle Shoals’ legendary FAME Studios with Wilco producer/engineer Tom Schick, Tuscumbia calls to mind everything from The Byrds to Teenage Fanclub, as frontman Matthew Green’s meditative lyrics navigate a slew of major life changes, contemplate the meaning of home, and grapple with the realities of life on the road.
NPR praised the band’s “dreamy sound,” while SPIN said their music “glows with a deep, dusky aura,” and Uncut compared them to “Wilco, when the roots were still showing, with flashes of The Byrds and a note of country sadness.” More info: http://www.lowemill.net/event/belle-adair-in-concert-2/
