THE DEXATEENS "Red Dust Rising" CD-ONLY ES2107

Red Dust Rising is the new eleven track circuit breakin’ shot of southern fried get down from that twang and tumble tornado known as THE DEXATEENS. Whereas the band’s self-titled 2004 Estrus Records debut showcased these ‘Bama boys tattered tri-guitar rauchus rock blaze, “Red Dust Rising” reaches deeper down into the bands southern gospel roots with songs about love, heartbreak, friendship and life in the new rising south. Less Black Flag meets Black Oak...more Gram Parsons bareback riding Crazy Horse thru a backwoods brushfire with a six-pack, six-string and six shooter blazing. Exile in Alabama, perhaps? A 120 volt jolt of white lightning rock and roll recorded once again at 600 Studios in Alberta AL and mixed at the Sweatbox in Austin, TX by Mr. Tim Kerr, “Red Dust Rising” strips the band’s guitar arsenal down to two necks and twelve strings this time out and features the top shelf double stop string wrangling and vocal harmonizing of Elliot McPherson and Mr. John Smith. Roots, Americana, Southern Rock, Alt-Country...these boys are ALL and NONE of the above...filtering their down home Southern musical heritage thru a deep well of loud punk, hook filled power pop and raw n’ rowdy porch blues to deliver a unique and personal take on the young man’s south. A sound honed at countless full-on, on the floor backyard bashes and house parties and tempered with integrity, honesty and soul. This IS Red Dust Rising! Recorded by TIM KERR.
