Biography
On May 5th, The Country Side of Harmonica Sam releases their second album 'A drink after midnight' on El Toro Records. Just like on their debut album 'Open Letter to the Blues' the Swedish quintet delivers country music in a classic honky tonk fashion. Stylistically, the band has taken a step forward in time and the new album lands in the early 1960s. Occasionally, however, they still flirt with the late 1950s.
The album was recorded at Gula Studion in Malmö in cooperation with sound engineer David Carlsson. All tracks were live takes, and both vocals and instruments were recorded in the same room. This recording process is, according to the band, a prerequisite to get the authentic feel of the music.
The album's title track and opening number is signed Dan Englund and starts off with a classic pedal steel intro a’la Peter Andersson. Old loyal fans will instantly recognize the familiar sound of The Country Side of Harmonica Sam and can comfortably sit back.
Englund has also written Unjust friends, which is an up-tempo number with a happy melody but, as in most cases, with a sad story. Other original songs on the album are Cry me a river, composed by the band's guitarist Johan Bandling Melin, in which the tic-tacbass has a pushy role, and True lies, which is a classic country shuffle penned by Tobias Einestad. With the single release of True Lies, The Countryside of Harmonica Sam was among the nominees in the category Honky Tonk Group for the second consecutive year at Ameripolitan Music Awards in Austin, Texas.
Original songs are mixed up with songs such as Coy Jackson's smoking hot Lookout Heart, and the for Wade Ray perhaps somewhat unusual tearjerker Tears don’t stain.
There are also familiar country shuffles like Wynn Stewart's Big City and Faron Young's Country Girl. With Bill Philips's Blues are settin' in, a new element of pop is finding its way into the sound. And for once, even a minor chord or two!
With the new album 'A drink after midnight' The Country side of Harmonica Sam hopes that both old and new listeners will be able to absorb the, in comparison with the debut album, somewhat more "modern" sound.
