The Dying Californian – Coarsegold
Label: Turn Records
Release Date: April 10, 2007
Berkeley-based singer/songwriter Nathan Dalton leads his motley crew of former bay area hardcore kids down a dusty alt-country road. Goddamn! It sucks to get older.
How is it?:
A blend of traditional Americana, that Berkeley folk sound, and a twist of indie sensibility make this one into a bittersweet cocktail that fans of hip gray-haired folks like Willie Nelson and Neil Young might enjoy.
Musical buzzkill: “The Martyrdom of Perpetua”
Medic-Aid: Cowboy Junkies, Willie Nelson, Neil Young
