$8 in advance/$10 at the door

Adrift is the third album from Minneapolis quartet, Greycoats. It continues the historical and mythological narrative of their previous releases: the moody, dystopian WWI imagery of Setting Fire to the Great Unknown (2008) and the hubris and pomp of the1939 World’s Fair on World of Tomorrow (2013). Adrift takes the listener from the starting line of the space race to the launching of the Voyager probes. One could say the band beat their guitars into synthesizers, or one could simply say they surrendered to the night. 

Wingman recruited the skills of Brett Bullion (Bad Bad Hats, John Mark Nelson) to mix their self-engineered album, and Huntley Miller (Bon Iver, Low) for the master. Spanning a wide range of sound, Wingman is at once pop sensible and melancholy; both driving and laid back.

NO COVER

"Joe & Vick have been making their own brand of blues music for decades. Hailing from Iowa, this husband & wife duo spend more time on the road then some musicians half their age.  Their take on the traditiuonal blues is unique and authentic at the same time. Their sound takes you down to a juke joint in Mississippi over 100 years ago, where there was no air conditioning, the beer was warm and the songs are bathed in mud."  -Jody Hendrix - Little Class Records
