ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DUTCH COUSINS got their start in the summer of 2003 in the lovely suburbs of Washington, DC. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Karpf pieced together the band - a mix of party acquaintances and classified ads. They played their first show in early 2004 and continued gigging around the DC area. That summer they recorded a batch of songs intended for an EP in drummer Barry Blankenship’s basement with engineer and friend of the band Scotty O’Toole. Original guitarist Dan Hughes left the fold as that recording session was winding down. O’Toole offered his guitar skills and the band’s sound evolved into something a little more ROCK.
The EP never quite happened but rather turned into a full-length album. Some songs are included in their original recorded form, some are from later recording sessions at Chicken Coop studios in the rolling farmland of Howard County, MD, and many of the tracks feature the guitar work of all three guitarists that have passed through the Dutch Cousins’ story. Bass and myspace provided by resident “Evil” Isaac Weiser. The hard-won album, TRAVELING SONGS, was independently released in late 2006.

Traveling Songs is my favorite album from 2006. Tom Karpf is a first-rate songwriter, and the band turns in a stellar performance on this disc. Support this independent band and buy Travelling Songs!

"Traveling Songs" is Super-Great!
"Traveling Songs" will m-o-v-e you with its power-pop music. Across all the songs, there is a sonic abundance of twangy and chimey guitars propelled by powerfully clean drumming. The Cars-like "All That I Can Do" opens the CD and travels well from there. "Fuzzy Dice" sounds like a futuristic Gene Clark song, well-written and flavored with Byrds-style harmonies. Band leader Tom Karpf is an emotive vocalist and strong songwriter who deftly blends the best elements from pop, folk and rock music and ends up with a fresh original set of enjoyable tunes. The Dutch Cousins bring the songs to life with well-built arrangements. Fave tracks include: "All That I Can Do," "Gold," "Jasmine," and "Down at the Top of the World." Its a pleasure to highly recommend this CD. Now buy it! :)
