The Dawes / Blitzen Trapper show last night at Dada was spectacular. The KXT On The Road crew got some great footage for a couple new Live Sessions. More in the coming weeks. For now, enjoy When My Time Comes by Dawes.
This band, from Providence, Rhode Island, is mainly built around the vocals of John McCauley, who incorporates country and rock influences into his writing and sound. After Rolling Stone proclaimed their second record Born on Flag Day the “Country-Rock breakthrough of the year”, they joined tours with Neko Case and Dawes. This song is from their third record, The Black Dirt Sessions, was culled from tracks recorded at the same time as Born on Flag Day.
These soulful California country rockers are redefining the Laurel Canyon sound that once echoed in the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Joni Mitchell, and many others. Their debut, North Hills, has several singles in rotation here at KXT, including “When My Time Comes” and “My Girl to Me”.
