Matt Patton (Drive-By Truckers) talks about the new album....we hope you will join us this Saturday night, December 27, 2014 at the premiere in St. Paul!
The debut record by Minnesota band ThelonesomeKid is something I almost missed being a part of. I heard all the mixes when I got off one leg of a tour this year. It was love at first listen.
I'm in and and out of the Dial Back Sound studio a lot, enough to keep up on most things coming through town. It was to my regret that this awesome thing had taken place in Water Valley and I had missed it. Bronson Tew and I worked on a lot of things while I was home that particular time and at the end of those nights we kept coming back to those mixes. Over a short period of time a song sequence came to me that the band agreed was pretty nice. And, before we mastered it, as luck would have it, I even got to lay down a bass line. Here's a trippy video the band made for the record featuring that track. Jimbo Mathus also lays down some nasty vocals on here. This record comes out online Christmas and the release party is 12/27 in St. Paul, MN and I couldn't be more proud for them!
