Dead Westerns, The – “Wallpaper Silence” – [20 Sided Records]

Dianthus   8/18/2011   7-inch, A Library

Some of the things that make me proud of being from the Bay Area are good food, good people and good music like The Dead Westerns. This quartet started out in the basement on Bernal Hill and were seasoned with influences such as Dick Dale, Willie Nelson and Stephen Malkmus. All together this forms a fogged in sound of empassioned hiccupping vocals, whiskey and saltwater soaked guitars, country bass and strong rhythmic keys creating a cinematic landscape that belongs in a 50s style movie soundtrack. This 7″ contains 4 tracks of blissfuly fun surf rockesque style tunes and some do-wop all throughout. I especially loved the into track “Just to be in your sight” that would be perfect for a roadtrip or just a good ol’ dance on yer table. Check out The Dead Westerns on your speakers or at a SF music venue soon!
