YOU CAN'T GO BACK IF THERE'S NOTHING TO GO BACK TO
ever since we first heard ‘post to wire’ back in 2004 we’ve been in love with the maudlin country blues of the ever incredible Richmond fontaine.
theirs is the sound of the true gothic Americana - confessional, deeply personal tracks that deal with love, and, more prominently, loss, punctuated with pedal steel and backed by a shuffling, slowcore, meandering structure that mark kozelek would be proud of. it’d be easy to have this on in the background and swell up with the emotive music and pick up on the occasional refrain, but the magic lies in diving into it, letting it take you over and living in their world. “dramatic and poetic, you’ll sorely miss Richmond fontaine when they’re gone” – q magazine
