The Truth About Us

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Da wir bereits das letzte Album von TIM EASTON, Special 20, auf Blue Rose veröffentlicht hatten, mag es den Außenstehenden nicht verwundern, dass auch der Nachfolger, The Truth About Us, bei uns erscheinen wird. Bei Easton hat sich in den letzten beiden Jahren jedoch einiges getan - neues Management, Umzug von Columbus, Ohio nach Los Angeles sowie neues US-Label New West Records (Bottle Rockets, Slobberbone), und so erscheint das neue Album bei uns im Rahmen der Label-Kooperation. Wir hätten das Album aber auch so gerne aufgenommen, ist es doch ganz hervorragend ausgefallen. 11 neue Songs, in Chicago unter der Obhut von Joe Chicarelli (Beck, U2) produziert, und unter der Mithilfe von Wilco (John Stirratt, Jay Bennett, Ken Coomer) sowie Victoria Williams und Marc Olson (ex-Jayhawks) entstand ein unglaublich warmes, harmonisches und feines Album, die Songs eine Verschmelzung aus akustischen und elektrischen Gitarren, Bass, Schlagzeug, Melotron, Samples, Loops und weiteren Effekten.

TIM EASTON's musical vision draws on the strongest aspects of traditional genres like blues and folk music and filters it through a modern sensibility that embraces technology, atmosphere, rock'n'roll and the shameless pop hook. Tim's self-released solo album, Special 20, released in Germany on Blue Rose, brought him to the attention of E.M.I. publishing, inking a deal with them in the fall of 99. After relocating to Los Angeles, Tim became a fixture at songwriter hubs like Largo and McCabes and soon thereafter signed a recording contract with New West Records. Tim's debut on New West and his second for Blue Rose, The Truth About Us, is a major artistic statement from an artist who takes his music very seriously. Producer/Engineer Joe Chicarelli (Beck, U2) was called in to helm the project, and suggested cutting basic tracks in Chicago with some of the members of Wilco as a backing band. The Truth About Us is a collection of intricate, beautifully crafted songs that blend acoustic and electric guitars, bass and drums with mellotron, samples, distorted beat box loops, backwards e-bow guitar and various other atmospheres and effects.
