Music For The Rest Of Us - Low Tide Drifters

£8.95 (£7.46 ex. vat)
Eugene’s own left-edge folk sensation, Low Tide Drifters, have released their second full-length album, titled Music for the Rest of Us. The band has been working for over a year in mixed spaces to create the textured, multifaceted sound that has come to life in this 10-track disc.

Songs on this release span a wide range of topics and influences and expand the concept of the “folk” genre. Many of the album’s songs have a surprisingly hard edge for an acoustically equipped folk band—the songs “Living on Too Little,” “Real Victories,” and “Already Home” hit at the root of larger social issues and aren’t afraid to use a little drum or display punk-rock roots to get the point across.

Drifters bring it on home to Oregon with some depression-era original story songs in the tracks, “My Vivian” and “Bound for Lakeview.” For a sweet touch, Low Tide Drifters have not forgotten how popular they are with the younger set and have included “Eden’s Lullaby” and “Will We Say We Did Our Best?”—a parent’s cry to environmental action and awareness.

The album is rounded out with some well-chosen cover tracks by Oregon’s late, great singing longshoreman, Harry Stamper, Jr., author of the classic “We Just Come To Work Here (We Don’t Come To Die)” and Scottish folk legend, Alistair Hulett (Drifters cover his “Destitution Road”).
