The Deslondes follow up their impressive debut album with the equally fine Hurry Home. Less country inclined than its predecessor the album finds the band roaming through a variety of styles – swampy southern roots, 50’s rockabilly, and classic rhythm & blues which, with several members of the band singing lead on various songs gives the album a truly dynamic feel.
Hurry Home represents a sonic shift from the country-folk of their debut to a psychedelic, electrified soul sound, with a stronger emphasis on organ and electric guitar. The band split up songwriting and lead vocal duties among its five members, Sam Doores, Riley Downing, Dan Cutler, John James Tourville and Cameron Snyder, continuing its democratic ethos and musical versatility.
The last song on Hurry Home is Riley Downing's "Déjà Vu and a Blue Moon." The band recorded this version at Willie Nelson's studio Pedernales last spring:
