Product notities

No stranger to the western Iowa and South Dakota regional music scenes, Mathew deRiso a.k.a. Mat D has changed gears on his new album 'Plank Road Drag.' The CD is a departure from last year's critically acclaimed 'Dirt Town City Limits' which featured the vigorous no holds barred outlaw country and southern rock offerings of backing band the Profane Saints. 'Plank Road Drag' instead showcases deep-seated old time and bluegrass influences layered over Mat's signature molasses n' gravel tinged vocals and dynamic acoustic guitar. Produced by collaborator and band mate Kurt Mullins, the album builds on the natural, stripped down sound of Mat's award winning solo albums 'Gasoline Rattle' and 'Merciful 66.' This time around however, production meant changing the formula used on his previous solo work. 'With my past records I was going for that one voice, one guitar approach. I enjoyed being able to go into the studio; sit in front of the mic and crank out these simple, bare bones type songs. Sometimes I'd record a mandolin part or Kurt would lay down a bass track or an occasional guitar track, then we'd mix it down and it's done. We kept it straightforward, honest and raw.' With the bare-bones route well traveled, it was time to for a change. 'My approach on Plank Road Drag changed while the band and I were working on Dirt Town City Limits. I wanted to take my time, slow down, work here and there and incorporate more instrumentation. It was really about building the songs from the ground up and thinking outside of my comfort zone as a songwriter and performer. I even taught myself how to play Banjo during the sessions! It's been a real labor of love for the past year and a half we've spent working on it. I think my core audience will enjoy the results.' The album will appeal to fans of American Roots music, folk, bluegrass, old timey, alternative country and early rock n' roll. 'There's something for everybody on Plank Road Drag. I'm sure a few fans will be a little hesitant to embrace some of the more hill country vibe on a few songs. I'm just trying to keep things inventive. As a songwriter I think it's important to develop the music that's coming out of me in the moment." The album goes from the front porch rockabilly blues stomp of opening track 'Resurrection Cadillac' and makes a quick transition to the claw-hammer banjo and mandolin dominated track 'Nails and Grease'; and while a few tracks on the album hold true to the underpinning of Mat's other solo works, the record shows a songwriter breaking innovative musical ground and holding his own in the process.
