Critically acclaimed UK band, Dry the River, are touring in support of their debut album, Shallow Bed, which was released on RCA Records earlier this year. The album was produced by Peter Katis (Interpol and The National) and recorded in Connecticut.
The band has spent the first half of 2012 touring all over the US alongside acts such as Bowerbirds and Alabama Shakes and also headlining their own largely sold-out US tour. Festival appearances so far include Lollapalooza, SXSW, and Sasquatch, with more to come including Austin City Limits in October.
The first things you notice are the voice and the space. That voice belongs to Nathaniel Rateliff, a man who’s earned the twang and hard-knock weariness that shines through on his Rounder debut. The space comes courtesy of producer Brian Deck (Califone, Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse), who helped transform 8-track bedroom demos into miniature epics of contrast, beauty, and yearning. In Memory of Loss is a stunning, heartbreaking sonic document from a singer-songwriter who’s made his way from a childhood in Bay, Missouri (pop. 60) to the national stage.
