ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Much American music has been called "devil music:" Blues first, then jazz, country music, rock and roll, then hard rock, and metal. The tendency persists today. The songs on The Benedictions Play Devil Music share a commonality in their evocation of myth: they go directly to that myth. It's hard folk, hard blues, hard country. It's solitude, doubt, doom, hope, failure, the last threads of mystery trying to keep their grip while they blow down early morning streets, across barrooms and into cities destroyed by floods. Freight trains are ghosts, the prairie is barren and forgotten, even desolate border towns ring not with tumbleweeds and dust, but with distant wars, the shivers of memory, and darkness.
