The Deslondes: November 4, 2013 Mercury Lounge – Flac/MP3/Streaming

November 18, 2013

[still from this video]

The Deslondes aren’t a new band, but they’re a band with a new name. The group is led by our old friend Sam Doores and his writing partner Riley Downing and were once called The Tumbleweeds. Sam took a couple of years to play with Hurray For The Riff Raff, and he returned full time to his own band the Deslondes were born. The name is taken from the street in New Orleans where Sam lives, and the band plays down home Americana with touches of country, bluegrass and honky tonk. This Fall the Deslondes were the support on the recent Spirit Family Reunion / HFTRR tour that came to NYC a couple of weeks back, and we caught the “secret” show at Mercury Lounge. The Deslondes set featured some older Tumbleweeds songs and some new tracks destined to be recorded soon, and was well received by the packed house. We’re streaming set highlight “Depression Blues”.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Hurray For The Riff Raff recording and the sound quality is equally superb. Enjoy!
