Freakwater - Scheherazade album download

When Freakwater made their first recordings in the late '80s, they set a template that would serve them well for the next 27 years: a darkly austere country sound rooted in the sisterly harmonies of Catherine Irwin and Janet Beveridge Bean. Making good use of a minimal backing band-often just their own guitars and an upright bass, with flourishes of pedal steel and electric guitar-they updated the downcast vocals of the Carter Family and wrote songs set in some alternate-reality American past. The presence of so many imperiled infants on Scheherazade is oddly reassuring, a nice reminder that this is a Freakwater album after all.

Album · 2016 · 12 Songs. On Freakwater's ninth album since 1989, the duo confess to personal failings and claw at redemption in bleak yet beautiful tunes like "The Asp and the Albatross" and "Bolshevik and Bollweevil," which seem to kick against the relentless tide of time.

Scheherazade ‎(LP, Album, Ltd, 180). Freakwater have always made very private music, music to be played when you’re alone, or on the road, when you’ve got the time to let their songs slip into your soul, where their songs become a part of your being, where you’re face to face with yourself and your emotions, where the shirt you’re wearing is just the right.

Freakwater is an American alternative country band from Louisville, Kentucky, with one co-founding member living in Chicago. Freakwater is known for the lead vocals of Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin, who mix harmony and melody in idiosyncratic dissonant country-folk that is reminiscent of the Carter Family.

It’s been more than 10 years since Freakwater released an album, but the alt-country act swears they never broke up. We never intended to not make a Freakwater record, says vocalist-guitarist Catherine Irwin. there’s definitely no one in charge. The group’s eighth record, Scheherazade, premieres on Speakeasy today. The 12-song set was recorded in the fall of 2014 and mines many familiar Freakwater themes – dark storytelling married with soulful, rootsy arrangements they’ve been honing since they first formed in the late ‘80s.

Freakwater themselves haven't changed, but Scheherazade does find them working with a different supporting cast; while their previous albums were all cut in Chicago, Scheherazade was recorded in Freakwater's native Louisville, Kentucky, with a team of players that includes Warren Ellis from the Dirty Three, James Elkington from Tweedy and Eleventh Dream Day, and Evan Patterson of Young Widows on guitar .
