Album
Tolman, Russ
New Quadrophonic Highway
(Diverse)

Pris: 69 SEK

Seventh album by the US songwriter from San Francisco after the release of his critically acclaimed „City Lights“ in March 1998. In the mid-80s Russ Tolman co-invented the so-called „No Depression“ sound with guitar rockers True West.
„New Quadrophonic Highway“ contains a musical cocktail which is hard to define: Is it Cosmic American Music? Tunes for Space Truckers? Trailer Park Techno? The album is a little bit of all these and more. Steel guitar, vintage moog synthesizer, banjos, dobro and digital loops are blended with Russ‘ great songs, a dash of 70s arena rock and a sprinkling of classic Motown to make an intoxicating cocktail of American music. Drawing upon his psychedelic roots and a theme of a future that never was, Russ Tolman uses modern studio techniques to make a genre-stretching album of classic American music. The usual trademark Tolmanisms are there: wicked guitar solos, deep husky voice and witty lyrics. But those are now cross-pollinated with funk and soul, banjos and groove music, country pedal steel guitar and Moog/Arp synthesizers. Tolman did call a few friends to help him out: Go To Blazes lead guitarist Tom Heyman provides the pedal steel, and Flying Color/Map of Wyoming singer Dale Duncan adds plenty of sweet harmony vocals. An analog synth wizard and a bass player or two were also called in, as well as song contributions from Steve Wynn and John Wesley Harding.
