Frontier Ruckus - Deadmalls & Nightfalls album

Official | Read a real review | Buy for $6

This band is easily one of my new favorites. Last week they released their highly anticipated new album, Deadmalls & Nightfalls. I had been listening to their first song off the album, "Nerves of the Nightmind", for weeks so I was really excited to hear the rest. I am not big on album reviews so I'll just make it simple, go buy it. You can buy it for $6 here, an incredible deal for such a wonderful album. They are americana/folk/indie-ish and happen to play some of my favorite instruments like the banjo, saw, dobro, horns, and trumpets. Their album has the gravity of nostalgic longing with inflections of hope sprinkled throughout. It is an absolute pleasure to listen to, and I mean really listen. It is the kind of album where you should put it on and really hear the lyrics and listen to the instrumentation, it is beautiful and heartfelt. Unfortunately, their current tour neglects the north east but if you live elsewhere you can probably go see them. For the most part, tickets to their shows are under $10. That's like two cups of starbucks, so you should probably make it happen. If you are from Michigan you will really like it, as many of their songs, past and present, are about the state. I've never been, I flew over it recently, and it looked pretty, but after listening to this album I would like to go. Enjoy. (This is my third post about them, so they are kind of a big deal).
