TROUBADOUR DALI RELEASE NEW ALBUM AND ANNOUNCE TOUR DATES

Spare acoustic guitars and minimal percussion give way to a stacked guitar symphony and harmonically tangled vocals. A simple riff unfolds into something totemic. The slow-building narcotic begins to seep through your pores, and you wonder about the chemical reactions taking place in your brain and on the disc.” RIVERFRONT TIMES

“indeed, one that’s going to be in the discussion of best local albums of 2011, the group excels in the live setting, too.” – ST. LOUIS MAGAZINE

Troubadour Dali releases their second album, Let’s Make It Right on August 8, 2011 through Euclid Records.

Formed in 2005 in St. Louis, MO, Troubadour Dali creates lush vocal harmonies paired with hypnotic grooves and jangly fuzz space guitar hooks. Let’s Make It Right shows exciting growth from Troubadour Dali’s 2009 self-titled album, which was mixed by producer Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, Mates of State).

Singer, Ben Hinn elaborates, “For Let’s Make It Right, we initially planned on recording only a couple of songs for a single release.  We ended up tracking an album’s worth of material between Sawhorse Studios, with Jason McEntire, and our home studios.  Most of the drums, bass, and guitars were recorded live at Sawhorse, with additional overdubs and vocals tracked there, at our apartments, fallout shelters, and other top-secret locations throughout Saint Louis. After our first record, everyone in the band delved further into recording, which has considerably helped with the song writing process of the band, and allows us to better share what we hear in our heads before going into the studio.  The result has been more focused and productive sessions.”

Nominated the last three years in a row by the St. Louis Riverfront Times for the best indie band, Troubadour Dali won the award in 2010.

Troubadour Dali has shared the stage with Warpaint, A Place to Bury Strangers, Darker My Love, The Entrance Band, Sleepy Sun, The Whigs and the Strange Boys to name a few. The band will play the 2nd annual LouFest in St. Louis Forest Park on Saturday, August 27, 2011 with The Roots, TV on the Radio, Cat Power, Deerhunter, Surfer Blood, The Hold Steady, Sleepy Sun, Ume and more.

Troubadour Dali (Debut CD)

<?php the_field('release3')

Euclid Records first CD release and the debut recording by St. Louis’ Troubadour Dali. Troubadour Dali has recruited accomplished producer Bill Racine (Mates of State, Rogue Wave) to mix its long-awaited album, which is due in August on Euclid Records’ new label. But the act hasn’t exactly been sitting around doing nothing during the past couple of years: It’s cycled through several lineups and carved out its own sound, away from the Brian Jonestown Massacre-influenced sonics which defined so much of its early output. An expanded lineup has enabled Troubadour Dali to incorporate more atmospherics and shoegaze-type textures — thus transforming its live show into an enveloping collage of ambient noise and pulsing pop-song constructs. Shae Moseley Riverfront Times: Songs include : Take Us Down, Always, Follow My Love, Still Looking, Lying Down, Harmonica, Heavy Feather and We Are the Sun.
