× Daddy Long Legs will be in the Netherlands next week

Daddy Long Legs will be in the Netherlands next week


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:
