Rise And Fall Of Goodtown

Wagons

Co-produced by Qua (who has worked with Architecture In Helsinki, Mountains In The Sky) the album has many new dimensions for the listener. Not surprising when you combine an electronic producer with a gothic country band. This is the least country record the band have ever made and it sees them embrace many new styles like classic rock. Keep your eye close to the speaker and you can hear elements of Skyhooks, Canned Heat, Scott Walker and Roy Orbison.

Review

Wagons’ new release is confident, dirty and strong as per usual. The incredibly big vocals of Henry Wagon are matched perfectly with the talented sextet of players that play with him.

The Rise and Fall of Goodtown will happily satisfy those with a love of country rock with impeccable guitar and quirky stories. Its sounds quite ‘live’ in a lot of tracks and is surprisingly variant in moods – going from an all-out crashing force to basic and haunting, with small cello intersections like on track seven. All in all, it’s a really impressive and stand-alone example of this genre that, for me, was quite an uplifting listen.
