Playing at grassroots festivals up and down the East Coast, The Pinkerton Raid explores the intersection of folk, Americana, and indie rock to craft “a sound for dreamers around a campfire,” (says Ghettoblaster). During 2020 through 2022, the band has been releasing a series of singles which are among a dozen new songs on their band’s fifth full-length album, The Highway Moves The World.

“Whenever I get to the end of an album cycle,” explains songwriter Jesse James DeConto, who grew up in New England and now resides in Durham, NC, “I usually have songs in the queue that didn’t fit with the previous record. ‘Blood in My Eyes’ and ‘Sometimes, Brothers’ were written years ago, in the same season as the songs on Where the Wildest Spirits Fly. Toward the end of that cycle, I was working on songs like ‘Au Cheval,’ ‘Cinnamon Sweet,’ ‘Basement Tapes,’ and ‘(Not All) the Boys Will Be Boys.’ At some point I realized I was writing an album about my family, and that framed the songs that followed.

“These songs are sketches of particular experiences that I think capture the personalities, gifts, and wounds of my parents, my siblings, my partner, my kids, and some chosen family. But it’s not just that – there’s something universal and representative about each of these individuals: my wife and daughter reckoning with patriarchy; the richness and friction of difference within families; the joy and pain of solidarity and sacrifice; the human spirit, and the nature spirits. The title-track, ‘The Highway Moves the World,’ narrates how my family stayed together across moves up and down the East Coast; the thread of the story is love.”

American Songwriter called “Dream the Sun” a “radiant … message of hope.” Topping 140,000 streams on Spotify, “Cinnamon Sweet” is both “thunderous” and “playful,” says Spill Magazine. “Lisbet Cries” is “poignant,” says Rolling Stone. “(Not All) The Boys Will Be Boys” is “a bluesy, slow-burning rallying cry for a better version of masculinity,” says IndyWeek.
