"simple, yet spontaneous" Pitchfork
Third Man Records is excited to release The Greenhornes’ first full length LP of new material, ****, since 2002. Their strongest collection of songs yet, **** is both diverse and concise - from the dark pop of lead single “Saying Goodbye”, the glam bubble of “Song 13”, to the moody psych “Cave Drawings”. Produced by The Greenhornes and John Curley, it’s an eclectic and mature work and very much band’s own.
The band- Craig Fox (vocals & guitar), Jack Lawrence (bass & vocals), Patrick Keeler (drums) – also, variously members of The Raconteurs and the Dead Weather- have been producing the highest quality rock n roll for well over a decade.
Formed in Cincinnati, Ohio, The Greenhornes have toured the world over and over (and over), released 3 full length albums, an EP and a shed load of singles. They’re pure, straight up Nuggets inspired rock and roll, and by straight-up we mean sans revisionist new wave of snotty garage rock posturing. These guys have been weened on a diet almost solely consisting of the finest r&b and rock innovators: from the The Kinks to The Zombies and The Easybeat - this isn't a hobby or something these guys are doing between projects--it's their life. Good, old-fashioned rock'n'roll, plain and simple.
**** will feature liner notes by Jim Jarmusch (The Greenhornes track, “There Is An End”, was featured throughout Jarmusch’s film, Broken Flowers (2005) and the limited edition LP will be pressed on four different colours of vinyl.
Its good to have them back, now, lets cut some rug!
