Album Review Round Up

The Dave Rawlings Machine is rolling into the Beacon in NYC tonight in support of their new album Nashville Obsolete. Check out some of the recent album reviews that have come in below!

“…now he and Gillian Welch mean business.”
– (9/10 Stars)

“There is so much on Nashville Obsolete that impresses, but what lingers longest is a rare and persuasive ability to tap into the ageless mythos of true American folk.”
– Uncut Magazine (8/10 Stars)

“…another haunting collection of deep folk, simultaneously timeless and incapable of being made by anybody else”
– Relix Magazine

“They are the kind of songs that you listen closely to because you are sure the singer has something important to tell you…”
– Performer Magazine

“…it’s loveliness front to back, songs about rootlessness and travel, the tension between being tied down and feeling free.”

“Once again you are wrapped in their acoustic world…”
– Faster/ (8/10 Stars)
