Deer Tick - “20 Miles”
Vocalist John McCauley may only be in his mid-20s, but his weathered voice and world-weary lyrics belie his age, and give Deer Tick’s music a gravitas often found in more veteran groups. Their third and latest full-length release, The Black Dirt Sessions, features delicate arrangements and a refined sound that sprang from the band’s extensive touring together. “20 Miles” is an example of this record’s intensely personal lyrics and strong songcraft.
Deer Tick - “Twenty Miles”
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.
