Joana Serrat – Dripping Springs

Loving the new album from Joana Serrat, it’s the Barcelona singer-songwriter fourth release in five years and her most ambitious and accomplished so far, the album title is taken from the recording location, Dripping Springs is a town in the Texas Hill Country and home to the nearby Plum Creek Sound a studio which belongs to perennial Beat Surrender favourite Israel Nash.

The recording took place with support from Joey & Aaron McLellan (Midlake, BNQT, John Grant, Israel Nash), Eric Swanson & Josh Fleischmann (Israel Nash), Dave Simonett (Trampled By Turtles) and Dennis Love (Futurebirds), additional guitars and backing vocals come from Israel Nash who also takes the production credit and the album was engineered/mixed by Ted Young (a Grammy award winner for The Rolling Stones).

Album opener Western Cold Wind is a bold choice, an atmospheric track that sets the bar high allowing the album to open out and capture a wide musical vista of contemporary Americana that meanders its way elegantly from start to finish without a misstep, highly recommend you check it out without delay.

Dripping Springs will be released digitally, on CD & and on 180g vinyl on the 29th September 2017 via Loose.
