Mojave Gold


Las Vegas-based honky-tonks, The Rhyolite Sound, are proud to release their new album, Mojave Gold. The album was self-produced by bandmates Larry Reha (guitar, vocals), Erik Alesi (acoustic guitar, vocals) AJ Palluck (drums), James Caselton (lead guitar) and Jason Aragon (bass) alongside Ronald Corso (11th Street Records, Las Vegas). Mojave Gold is the second album from Whiskey Preachin? Records and is also the second album from the label?s favourite desert honky tonkers, The Rhyolite Sound. Formed in 2013, the five-piece band blend their love of hard honky tonk, outlaw country and southern rock and roll to deliver a driving set of tuners that demands repeat listening and frequent rewinds. Whiskey-soaked and hard-twanging, weaving memorable melodies among the madness and mayhem. The Rhyolite Sound are purveyors of pure honky-tonk in an impure world, Packed full of toe-tapping two-stepping weepers and hell-raising, barn-burning stompers, Mojave Gold is what Whiskey Preachin? have been panning for. ?We?ve really based our entire identity around the fact that our home base is the Mojave desert?, says guitarist and vocalist Larry Reha. ?Rhyolite, the ghost town, was at one time the largest gold strike in Nevada. We?ve really put a lot of heart into this album and we?re hoping that, in some way, we strike gold, too. Our sound is unique and blends so many different styles and sounds, we feel like this record will be an unexpected treasure, not only for for local fans, but for country music and honky-tonk fans everywhere. Here?s what Saving Country Music had to say about Mojave Gold: ?You may worry an act like this takes themselves too seriously, which is a symptom of some modern Outlaw country bands. But they can play a cover song like Mickey Newbury?s ?Why You Been Gone So Long? and leave the machismo behind to do the song justice. And what really surprises you as the album goes along is how funky some of the songs get. All the tones and textures are spot on, including the swanky guitar and keys parts?.
