Dawes – North Hills / 2009

The debut album from Dawes – recorded live to tape (all analog!) at Canyonsound Studio in Laurel Canyon, CA. Produced by Jonathan Wilson (Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis) and mastered by Rob Fraboni (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton) at Effortless Mastering in Weston, CT. Dawes are not interested in bells and whistles. The Los Angeles quartet seem to get all their musicianship and expression across through the inherent nature of the instruments. They seem to have the utmost respect for the song itself, only stepping out when a song calls for it, relying on the other to keep the holes filled and the ship sailing smoothly, letting the music reflect their own personal relationships to the listener. It doesn’t just sound like four guys who are playing in a room together – it finally IS.
