Album Notes
CD version of ‘The Red Album!"

Red Molly delivers their edgiest CD to date, with a wildly cool collection of songs. Previously perceived as a straightforward three-part harmony Americana/Folk trio, the band takes a distinctive shift towards darkness with the new indie collection. Think ‘Mazzy Star with a twang,’ and you may get a sense of the ethereal, sometimes even unsettling quality the women evoke in the buzzworthy album.

From the haunting opener, ‘Clinch River,’ to the classic vibe of ‘I Am Listening,’ to the cinematic lyrics of ‘Willow Tree’ to the stunning ‘When It's All Wrong’ and ‘Copper Ponies’, ‘The Red Album’ (set for digital release on April 1 and physical release on May 27) is full of meaty, meaningful tracks — ‘Sing to Me’ feels like an ‘adult lullaby’...and the band’s cover of ‘Homeward Bound’ is simply gorgeous...and then of course they switch up the pace completely with ‘Pretend’

The trio, which celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2014, is comprised of Laurie MacAllister (bass,) Abbie Gardner (dobro,) and Molly Venter (guitar), and they are road warriors who regularly perform 100 or more concerts each year. Over 40 tour dates are already confirmed for the months ahead, and more will be announced soon. An itinerary follows.

The upcoming CD marks the trio’s first Nashville-produced album with Ken Coomer (original drummer for Wilco & Uncle Tupelo). Coomer shook things up sonically, putting Abbie Gardner's dobro through effects for a few songs. He also had Molly Venter use six different guitars on the album - including an electric. Guest artist, bassist Craig Akin funked things up as well – and the overall result is a grittier sonic landscape, juxtaposed with Red Molly's signature pristine three-part harmonies. Coomer also pushed for more original material than previous records -- eight original songs made the cut; four written by Venter & four by Gardner. The band also continues their long tradition of honoring other songwriters, with MacAllister on lead vocal for four covers, including Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘Homeward Bound'. Plus, after years of fan requests, the band recorded their namesake song ‘1952 Vincent Black Lightning,’ by Richard Thompson.

Red Molly has been featured by American Songwriter, No Depression, Bluegrass Unlimited and more. They have an engaged, supportive fan base and regularly sell out venues ranging from Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, CA to City Winery in NYC. The trio toured Australia & Denmark in 2013, and are headed to Ireland & the UK in 2014.

What a lovely surprise
I just discovered this band, and I love this cd! Great vocal harmonies, playful at moments (Pretend) and beautifully dark in others (Clinch River). Fantastic
