Daddy Long Legs will be in the Netherlands next week03-02-2020
Daddy Long Legs return with savagery and sophistication to the Benelux. Their last record Lowdown Ways contains 12 original tracks that punch a necessary hole in the 21st Century landscape, both sonically and spiritually.
The expansive, new territory that the New York City-based trio cover on Lowdown Ways is thanks to producer Jimmy Sutton (JD McPherson, Pokey Lafarge, Jake La Botz) who applies his technical know-how to broaden the sound of such instantly memorable tunes as Pink Lemonade (co-written by McPherson), Ding Dong Dang and Bad Neighborhood, which resonate with the down-and-dirty roots that have always been Daddy Long Legs’ inspiration. Meanwhile, the band ventures successfully into unfamiliar territory with the pub-rock-style Winners Circle, the bittersweet acoustic ballad Back Door Fool and the dramatic album-closer Wrong Side of the River.
Written in the great cities of Brooklyn and Nashville and recorded on the Southside of Chicago at Hi-Style Studio, the beloved trio have created a record cinematic in scope that rides the crest of the new century with a beggar’s banquet of ancient spells, hollers and fuzz, steel guitars rapturous preaching, and of course, a Daddy Long Legs stompin’ beat. Go see them them this month while they are here:
