Venice Beach’s beloved “roots collective” known as The Dustbowl Revival recently released their third album entitled Carry Me Home. The record continues the band’s mission to mimic or cover the Americana pioneer genres by mixing ten hodgepodge tracks of swamp blues, gospel sweat, porch bluegrass, and gypsy jazz. Produced by Eric Lilavois at Crown City Studios and recorded by twenty-seven members of the collective, this is the big band’s boldest collection to date. And as always, it’s their original songs that prove the consortium’s worth as not just being a novelty act. Listen to the reliable chanteuse, Caitlyn Doyle, croon her soul on “Riverboat Queen”:
The Dustbowl Revival will be performing every Wednesday this month for a residency at The Mint.
