Killer reissue of the second album by The Kill Devil Hills, The Drought, originally recorded in November 2005, where the band goes toward dirtier and rawer sounds. The band continues in the direction of their first work, Heathen Songs, but adds dirtier nuances and rock. If in the first album you could mention Nick Cave and Hugo Race as influences, in this second one you can easily add The Beasts Of Bourbon to the list of influences, when listening to some of the rawest songs of it. This gang of animals from Perth, Australia, take their swampy folk-blues and take it to a new world of more extreme and wild sounds where melodies and violins create a wall of sound that involuntarily forces you to listen. After their successful tours of Australia and America, The Kill Devil Hills released this album in which they showed you that they were not "the next big thing", they were really a great band with overwhelming live shows. A key band and a pillar of the new emerging and ardent scene that has once again made Australia a hotbed of creativity. Bang! Records returns to edit this band, and as usual, with the quality Bang! Edition of 500.
