In the Marrow (Bonus Track Version) by Dead Confederate on Apple Music

9 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Dead Confederate has been compared to Nirvana and Pink Floyd over the years, and surely Dinosaur Jr. should be there as well. The angst-ridden vocal lines of "Vacations"—with its twisty and screeching lead guitar licks—are the sounds of a relatively young band exploring its influences. The seven-plus minutes of "Slow Poisons" roots its magic in the simple but progressive strains of early-'70s rock, whereas the four minutes of "Bleed-Through" capture the familiar trudging of '90s indie rock groups from Pavement to The Breeders and Archers of Loaf. Dead Confederate isn't afraid of showing its lumps. The title track starts with guitars finding each other and eventually melding into a pretty melody that evokes the minor-key dirges of the grunge era. "Big City Life" takes the group back to its Augusta, Ga., roots for a tortoise-paced alt-country sound. The bonus track "Took a Bad Hand" kicks up the tempo for a charming psych/garage rock tune.

About Dead Confederate

Dead Confederate take a post-grunge approach to their music, which also leans heavily on the group's psychedelic and Southern rock influences. Seeds for the band's formation were planted during the late '90s, when future bandmates Hardy Morris (vocals, guitar), Brantley Senn (bass), Walker Howle (guitar), John Watkins (keyboards), and Jason Scarboro (drums) bonded over a shared affinity for Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath. Although hailing from Augusta, GA, the quintet relocated to Atlanta following college graduation. A second move quickly followed, this time to Athens, where the group doubled its touring efforts and caught the attention of former Capitol Records president Gary Gersh. Impressed with the band's haunting sound, Gersh signed Dead Confederate to his new label, The Artists Organization, and issued their debut EP in early 2008. A full-length album, Wrecking Ball, followed in September, and the group returned two years later to release its second record, Sugar. An EP, Peyote People appeared in 2012, followed by a third full-length, In the Marrow, early in 2013. ~ Andrew Leahey
