Men Amongst Mountains by The Revivalists on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Revivalists’ third album exudes the swampy, down-home flavor of previous efforts, yet the music also boasts a novel pop sensibility that’s equally delicious. Where “Fade Away” oozes the sweaty, Southern soul-rock that initially earned them a rabid fanbase, “Wish I Knew You” offers a whole new look, with David Shaw’s gruff croon dancing over sleek disco beats. The love-weary “Gold to Glass” goes further, thanks to its slinky Latin guitar licks and the kind of thumping bass that fuels modern R&B.

About The Revivalists

A group of roots rock iconoclasts who call New Orleans home, the Revivalists formed in 2007 and wound up gaining traction in the early years of the next decade, with their second album, City of Sound, appearing on the Billboard charts upon its re-release from Wind-Up Records in the spring of 2014.

Vocalist David Shaw, guitarist Zack Feinberg, pedal steel player Ed Williams, bassist George Gekas, drummer Andrew Campanelli, saxophonist Rob Ingraham, and keyboardist/trumpeter Michael Girardot became known for their amalgam of rock, R&B, soul, country, and funk in New Orleans in the closing days of the 2000s, releasing an eponymous EP in 2008. Two years later, the full-length Vital Signs appeared and they began getting good reviews for their opening sets for the Rebirth Brass Band along with their constant touring and festival appearances. A second album produced by Ben Ellman called City of Sound appeared independently in 2012. In 2013, they signed with Wind-Up Records and set out to record their third album. In the meantime, Wind-Up reissued City of Sound in the spring of 2014 and it wound up hitting the lower reaches of the Billboard 200. Recorded straight to tape, Men Amongst Mountains, the band's third studio long player, arrived in July 2015.~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
