Austin, Texas based folk / indie / acoustic Americana band Swarme of Beese present their second album, Fruits of the Golden Land!
The album is a collection of sonic postcards from a mythical road trip through the back roads of the American landscape, with detours to haunted places where memories and dreams intersect. The pastoral journey meanders along the edge of the Okefenokee Swamp, across the prairies and cornfields of the heartland, and through the Ozarks, the Piedmont, and the coal fields of southern Appalachia. The tales woven into the shadows of these places are razor-edged and real, steeped in history and imbued with spirit of place, with an American gothic undercurrent. Honest vocal performances are enveloped in textural harmonies and atmospheric arrangements to form the band’s mutant folk sound.
Fruits of the Golden Land was produced, recorded, & mixed by Mark Addison at The Aerie in Austin, TX. Fruits of the Golden Land, Backwoods Modern Recordings, BWM 1671, available now on 180-gram vinyl, CD, and as a download, through Bandcamp (link below).
