    Dustbowl built their own flavor of Americana & Alt. Country-Rock: “Mother – Earth Rock” as they called their new “Great Fandango” album.
    “The Great Fandango” is the new Dustbowl’s album (May 2016). The band tried to made the watertight case for their music as an art form in itself. At a time when all local undeground music was stringently manufactured, these guitar-driven melodies and those Americana-produced whorls of sound proved that untried ground was not only the most fertile stuff, but also the most viable. It defined the past and - for good and ill - gave Dustbowl all its airs and graces.
    “The Great Fandango” soulful music resides not just in its compositional forms and instrumental invention, but in the elaborate vocal harmonies and lyrics that imbue these sad songs with an almost heartbreaking grandeur…it’s their “Mother – Earth Rock” legacy!

lyrics

The Gracious Exile

Ain't it strange?
I’d like to carry on
And follow you down
Like a crazy swan

I’m staggering
My gracious angel
You sent me down below
In a tender fable

Do you wonder where did all the faith go?
At the grievous gates of mercy
Faith is a-rollin’ down slow
I came a long way ‘cause you dwell in my blood
I found you standing there, looking fancy in the flood

In my gracious exile
There’s no virtue or weakness
Just a crazy circus
With no witness

Do you wonder where did all the faith go?
At the grievous gates of mercy
Faith is a-rollin’ down slow
I came a long a long way ‘cause you dwell in my blood
Everybody’s gone but me and your god
