Last Minute show addition at The Magic Stick on Saturday, 11/29
Touring behind their Bloodshot debut Starving Winter Report, Detroit’s acclaimed Deadstring Brothers found what they were looking for in London, where the Heavy Load club scene was packing in rock n’ roll fans who danced all night to bands like The Rolling Stones, The Black Crowes and The Allman Brothers. A bona-fide scene had developed that continues to grow today, where young players seeking kindred souls to play blues and country-tinged rock come together.
Energized by this burgeoning scene, and with a number of new British players in town, the Deadstring Brothers returned to Detroit to record Silver Mountain. Recorded in the Deadstring Brothers’ own recording studio, Silver Mountain boasts the tunesmanship of The Faces and the barroom howl of The Band stewed together in homage to the blues of the American South and dancehalls of the urban factory North.
Music like this formed the genesis of album-oriented FM rock -- Silver Mountain showcases high energy bluesy rave-ups and hymnal country ballads. Harmonica player Mickey Raphael also took a break from his place alongside the great Willie Nelson, contributing to “The Light Shines Within” and “Slow Down”.
Raw and feverish, Silver Mountain is the sound of a band working at its peak, synthesizing common influences (regardless of one’s birthplace) with a modern edge. Cut from jaws of Michigan steel, East London pubs and honed from months on the never-ending road, the Deadstring Brothers testify to the soul-saving grace of rock n’ roll.
