RICHMOND FONTAINE

THE FITZGERALD (2016 reissue)

EL CORTEZ



180g lp + download

Released: 14th Oct 2016

£21.99


'The Fitzgerald', Richmond Fontaine's sixth studio recording, is a quiet departure from the raucous, visceral send-ups and live shows that got the band compared to the likes of The Replacements and Whiskeytown.

Written when singer/songwriter, Willy Vlautin was holed up for two weeks in a Fitzgerald Casino hotel room in Reno, Nevada, the album is a stark collection of songs about the people who live in the shadows of a casino town. If you think Springsteen's "Nebraska" as written by a young Tom Waits on an acoustic guitar, you'll be close.
