Luxury Wafers Exclusive: The Dry Spells, live @ Chessvolt Studios with video and mp3s

by Landry on October 11, 2009

dryspells_12_luxurywafersThe Dry Spells are Tahlia Harbour on guitar and vocals, Warren Huegel on drums, Adria Otte on guitar, April Hayley on violin, tambourine and vocals and Diego Gonzalez on bass.

California storm-lined folk-rockers, The Dry Spells (all members, or former members, of Citay) originated as an empowered, all-female gig. Though they let some boys in, it’s still a girls’ band. Batwood kicks off with harmonies that evoke an approaching train, followed by a Salem-witchlike, shadowy folk story that steps up to their biggest violin-enhanced frenzy. Evangeline curiously folks along with a reggae vibe. Heliotrope floats, dazed like the Haight in its peak. Shruti drones with grave female folk harmonies.

View The Dry Spells recording a live version of the title track to their latest album, Too Soon For Flowers, below:
