About Me

My photo
WORKSHY - 2017 memoir out on Affirm Press. Let's get Tight - 2017 CD with Clare Moore. Moodists - Coral Snakes - mistLY. I don’t know what I am and don’t want to know any more than I already know. I aspire, in my music , to 40s B Movie (voice and presence) and wish I could play guitar like Charlie Christian or Grant Green -but not in this lifetime, I know.

dave graney and the mistLY  (aka the lurid yellow mist). The album is full of pop rock sensation, flash  and drama and the aforementioned outfit fires at will with a simple but totally drilled arsenal of two electric guitars, bass and drums. It will be the first album of new dave graney songs since “knock yourself out” in 2009.

a few words from dave…
this bunch of songs was recorded quickly, just the way I like it. Its not about layers of sounds, its just the simple setup of the band in the room and the songs. We knew them all pretty well so every song was put down to the machines with absolute certainty, power and poise. Its got all the flavours and tones about music that I’ve loved.They all came out in this session. . I guess the bedrock tone and attitude of my music is 70s rock.  That’s the west coast american sound in the vocals and my guitar and the r&b grooves and the jazz voicings of the chords. They are all the changes and tempos  that come out of me, naturally. Its pretty upbeat and begins with a  2:40 second song called blues negative that’s over before you know it and doesn’t let up”.

you’ve been in my mind comes out on cd with three extra tracks, demo versions of songs as first put down by dave graney and clare moore. The digital version of the album doesn’t have these tracks but includes the earlier 2012 single “king of the dudes” and two remixes of older dave graney songs, “sometimes you can see yourself” from 2005 and “midnight to dawn” from 2005.The latter features a cameo vocal from fellow traveller Henry wagons.

dave graney and the mistLY  will be touring nationally to promote the album in July.

No comments:


2014 solo album from Dave Graney. *****"If I've learnt anything in my years of writing about music it's that if you are going to do anything of worth in this tough game, you better have your own thing. Today's generic is easily replaced by tomorrow's. And yet you need to be flexible, to follow wherever the songs demand. In the case of this, only the second credited as a solo album among 30 or so Graney releases, it's a curious yet welcoming lane he walks you down, with acoustic guitars, not much percussion, vibes, smooth sounds. At the end of it you feel like you've awoken from a strange yet pleasant summer's dream. As shot by Luis Bunuel. It ranges from off-kilter reveries (A Woman Skinnies Up a Man, The Old Docklands Wheel) through to the softly seductive (How Can You Get Out of London) and the downright arch (Look Into My Shades, Everything Is Great In The Beginning.) This is music that is neither folk, nor blues, nor country, but it's all Graney, somewhere out to the left field beyond Lee Hazlewood's raised eyebrow. It's astringent on the tongue but sweetens in the telling." Noel Mengel Brisbane Courier Mail
