Description

Complete with piano and organ by Engineer Ross Nykiforuk (The Northern Pikes) and pedal steel by the band's drummer Lucas Goetz,The Deep Dark Woods' second record possesses all the same diverse song writing as their self-titled debut but with more emphasis on arrangements and instrumentation. Fronted by Ryan T. Boldt, the lead and rhythm guitar duties are shared between Boldt and guitarist Burke C. Barlow. C. S. Mason (bass) and Lucas Goetz (drums) round out the rhythm section as well as provide the band's characteristic bright harmonies. Influenced by the likes of The Byrds,The Grateful Dead, Gram Parsons, Neil Young, Bob Dylan,Tom Waits, as well as traditional bluegrass artists like The Stanley Brothers and Carl Story,The Deep Dark Woods blur the lines between country, rock, folk and bluegrass. From the dark, creepy "Redwood Forest" to the joyful gospel number "Glory, Hallelujah" to the bitter heartbreak of "Five-Hundred Meters" to the pedal steel driven "They Won't Last Long" the record's songs are as heartfelt as the band's songwriters. Recorded at Cosmic Pad Studios in Saskatoon during the winter of 2006-07, Hang Me, Oh Hang Me draws inspiration from the long, depressing Saskatchewan winter, road trips to the Southern States, as well as the sad state of today's popular music. Mixed by Juno Award winner Steve Dawson. Tracks: Five Hundred Meters / Glory, Hallelujah / Journey Home / They Won't Last Long / By The Light Of The Moon / Rumble In The Sky / Hang Me, Oh Hang Me / Redwood Forest / River In The Pines / Shores Of Alabama / Big City Blues.
