All the lost causes

June 2016




“All the lost cause”  is an acoustic  trip that commemorates folk tradition from both sides of the Atlantic ocean right from the prayer “Jack Frost Blues” inspired by american writer O. Henry with  standing out  duo vocals as well as mandolin and acoustic guitars work  speeding up  in “Ladybird” carrying us by the hand to a vitalist country music ground with sweet  harmonized vocals and love stories in a clever composition work.

Sixtie´s Psychedelic tradition takes place  in “Song for wife & son” voices and sitar in a  worthy hallucinogen Gram Parsons and partners environment  to drive us directly to the intense and dramatic  ballad “Yuigon” based in a ritual samurai poem where the band  clearly moves away from  rythmical canons to explore more obsessive and dark beats. New Yorker Dave Van Ronk`s “Bamboo”  popularised  by Peter, Paul and  Mary is covered by the band in a outstanding pop versatility exercise with own band´s sound sticking together around the jewel “Sea of Whisky”,  the aggressive and hypnotic “Let it rain” just to pour oil on trouble waters bringing us “The day you left the throne” worthy to be found among  Jagger/Richards best ballads.

“Sisyphus” a bright an existencialist pop tune along with the beautiful “All the lost causes” wich names the record, put an end to a full of creativity recording where the band is joined by lots of great musicians from Vigo´s scene. Mauro Comesaña, Xavier Vietez or Jann Zerega, from The Soul Jacket; Andrés Cunha, from Oscar Avendaño and Reposado; Javier Reboreda, Yago V. Pateiro And Marcos Frost, from The Last But One, Santi Mouriño (Bar, The Marabunta) and Oscar Santomé (Mega Purple Sex Toy Kit), Antonio Tato, Shei Sunshine and Bethania Garrido.
