Promised Land Sound – Fading Fast {mp3}

by Woody on August 14, 2013


Promised Land Sound are a four piece based out of Nashville. They are releasing their debut on the Paradise of Bachelors label, which also brought us one of 2013’s best efforts in Hiss Golden Messenger’s Haw. They play a twangy sound that will recall Gram Parsons and the more contemporary Dexateens. The album will see the light of day on 9/24. Here’s what the label has to say.

The group emerged from the fertile Nashville garage scene, and in short order, they’ve managed to attract the admiration of esteemed folks like fellow Nashvillain Jack White, whose Third Man Records released a live Promised Land Sound 7”, deeming them “one of our favorite local bands” and describing them thusly: “They’re all youthful scruff and bluff, and they crank out tunes that would be right at home in Link Wray’s 3 Track Shack or hanging with the specters of long lost 45s that haunt Nashville’s overflowing legend-filled cemeteries.”

I can dig it. Reminds me of Futurebirds.
