Dry County

Dry County were a band that I first heard about through nialler9, who featured the band on his site on the back of hearing a few album samplers on their myspace page.

I contacted the group and was promptly sent a copy of the album Unexpected Falls. What impressed me most about the group’s work was the complexity of layers on the record – wait, that sounds like journalistic wank – what I mean is that there is a lot to this record, and it’s a record that unveils itself more as you listen to it.

When Kev and Derek from Dry County visited us on the indie hour on Thursday 10th May, ahead of their album launch in Crawdaddy on Saturday the 12th May, Kev described the album as a Headphone Album, and I think that sums the sound up rather well.

They also spoke to us about Guy at the Exchange, having respect for their audience as an electronic act as opposed to checking their email on stage, Lazybird Label and nightclub, and Ventolin Inhalers.

The Lovely Mary Healy was with us as always for the gig guide, we heard Feist’s I Feel It All from her album The Reminder, Cap Pas Cap’s Said Say It from their EP Not Not Is Fine, and the nialler9 recommended track of Architecture in Helsinki’s Heart It Races.

    Nice post. I learn some thing very complicated on various blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to study content off their writers and practice a specific thing from their website. I’d choose to use some with the content in my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide link on your internet weblog. Thank you sharing.
