Damaged Goods

by Barley Station

Combines the roots of Americana, Pop/Rock, Country, and Folk and puts them in a blender with a dash of amaretto pouring out a tasty glass of contagious sound! The result is a distinctly alternative blend that draws deeply from its roots yet looks forward

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

The songs were selected using what we call the "Rumours approach" (after one of the best selling albums of all time "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac) and that is, every song must be a potential single in of its own - then each song was approached is an entity all its own. Every song carefully crafted as art. There was no "use this technique for everything" sort of approach. We let each song go where it seemed to want to go and didn't stop it. We took our time with each song and let it take as long as it needed to be right. There is no "we have to sound like this or that" there was only, this has to sound like it wants or demands to sound. Each of the two writers write in various styles and moods and its easy for a song to just spring to life on it's own. When we introduce songs we just play the bare bones for each other - acoustic guitar and vocal.

The album isn't us trying to be perfect, except in the sense of what we intended it to be. The singing is real, raw and living - organic if you will. It is us - warts and all. The element of humaness stays intact in these recordings. We present this music and call it perfect in it's imperfections, complete in it's humanness.


We really looked at making this new album from an artistic approach. Painting it delicately with each stroke of the musical brush. Not taking any shortcuts, but taking the painstaking time to get it just like we felt it should be.
Even to the selection of the album cover artwork. It has to speak definitively. "Damaged Goods" is more than just being about a bunch of broken pieces, or things. It speaks of lives, of our humanity, and who we are. When this album is released, we know that it won't be just a selection of some of our best work, or just a bunch of catchy songs, but it will be a connection. It will be like walking through an art gallery of sounds, sounds not just of the past and present, or even just the future, but sounds that speak to the heart and soul of the humaness of us all. And it is summed up in the line from the title song "Damaged Goods" that says, "we are all damaged goods, uh huh".

Fabulous album
Having been a fan of Barley Station for a long time, I really must say that their music and songwriting continues to impress me. I love this album so much, as it shows their true undeniable versatility as a group. Barley Station can be viewed as being a part of many combined genres and that's one of the things I admire and enjoy. Never boring, always entertaining. Huge fan from Canada.
