Red River Dialect are a five piece band based in Falmouth and Penryn. They have just recorded the follow up to their 2010 album ‘White Diamonds’ (which was recorded whilst the band were a duo), and will play the new album in full as this will be their last gig for some time. The new sound has been compared to Calexico, Dirty Three, Fairport Convention and Neil Young as it incorporates amp driven fiddle & harmonica and electric guitars (stacked with delay and reverb) with the heavy groove laid down by insistent drums and bass that fuses lo-fi dub, psych rock and folk. All this hangs from the skeleton of the songwriter’s brooding voice and acoustic guitar. There’s some swamp, some high plains, some cloud dancing, the odd forest fire and some street fighting.
“beautiful” 10 tracks you have to hear, NME
“akin to Callahan in lyrical deftness , his delivery occasionally flares with a recognisably Smog-y twang” Song of the Day, The Line of Best Fit
“some nice scrapey Warren Ellis-style fiddle playing and it's got this lovely hazy Eastern feel. They sort of remind me of Calexico in places” Norman Records
Support comes from The Oar, a lightly psychedelic kraut-folk band that centres around songwriter Andrew Hockey, Tickets are £3 from Jam, Miss Peapod’s and by clicking here
