Vol. II Album Review in StereoGumbo – Click the picture above.
Man, still resting up after this past weekend’s CD release run. Had so much fun, met some new people, and saw some old friends. Have you checked out the new record yet? It’s available pretty much everywhere for only $9.99:
Tell your friends, tell your mama, we’re real proud of this one. We’ll be touring it all around America this summer, which I’ll tell you about in the minute.
In the meantime, what’s going on for Dirty Bourbon? What are we up to as of late? What’ve we got for that big ol’ horizon up ahead? Well, I’ll tell ya:
For the rest of this month we won’t be playing any shows. We’ll be training our new bari sax player – Matt “Slyfox” Thomas – and finish writing the songs for Volume III (our next album – the Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction – is already written & tracked, just finishing up overdubs & mixing). Then, in May, we’ll kick off on the 5th for a super duper Cinco de Mayo partay with Glasgow & Vox & the Hound, followed by a month long tour on the eastern seaboard to support the release of Volume II – catch us with Blair Cimmins, Megan Jean & Holy Ghost Tent Revival. Then, come summertime, nother big NOLA show, then back to the east coast for another month. Then, this fall, we’ll be heading west to Colorado for another month tour! And then, we’ll come back home & release our 4th album – Old-Timey Afropop Gibberish Junction. Expect Volume III sometime around spring 2012.
So yup, we’ve got a lot of big things planned for the future.
And don’t forget – tell everyone you know about the new album! This beast’s spreading like wildfire, let’s keep that fire hot.
We here at D.B.R.L.L.C. got a lot of cool stuff coming up this 2011 – but why don’t you enjoy some free music in the meantime?:~
Check out our facebook here and if you hit the “like” button and post “I want my shit” on our wall w/ your email we’ll send you a free mp3 from our new, unreleased album, Vol II…
The mp3 is a track called “From Time to Time” written by our dear friend Jacob Anderson of Portland, OR’s the Bell Boys, who will be visiting us here in NOLA this march. Look for it…
Little A Cappella snippet Me & Big Charlie did of “My Tiny Little Friend & I”, a track from our 3rd upcoming album, Volume Two.
The song is 7 minutes in length, chronicling the adventures of a man & his tiny little friend as they go to the carnival, he looses his tiny little friend, and the man must then rescue him from the dark underbelly of the circus, fighting off gin-drunk big top mamas and monocled assassins in a dark, dark world, tiered with rabbit holes and strange colorful pathways of light, ducking bullets and hungry acid-riddled chimeras. Will they escape? Or be lost forever? The song features the Craft Brothers (Jack & Sam) and Booty Trove Brass Band. It is our mother fucking Bohemian Rhapsody. Look for it late this March 2011.
Spent all weekend in the studio finishing the last session of tracking for Volume II, due late this March 2011. Now all we have left are overdubs, mixing, mastering, and then we give it to you!
