ABOUT NEW MADRID
From just south of the Appalachian Mountains, in the rolling hills of Athens, GA., comes the roaring young four-piece New Madrid. Following the critical acclaim of their 2012 independently released album Yardboat, the band signed with Normaltown Records and promptly began work on their sophomore album Sunswimmer.
Recorded during a cool, rainy July, under the direction of David Barbe (Deerhunter, Drive-By Truckers), the aural landscapes forged in Sunswimmer become almost palpable. Combining reverb-drenched vocal harmonies, soaring underwater noise and floating, meandering melodies, the sounds don’t exit the speakers as much as they condense and hang in the air like the humid Athens summer that birthed them.
