I Draw Slow (from the album I Draw Slow available on Compass Records) (by Bryant Liggett))
The internet will tell you that Dublin, Ireland and Nashville, Tennessee are about 3900 miles apart. The internet is right. When you consider the music of I Draw Slow, however, it seems that distance is erased as the Dublin based band straddles the Atlantic Ocean with one foot in Music City sounds, the other in The Fair City (Dublin). With both spots an influential home, I Draw Slow’s latest self-titled release is an offering of music of America and of Ireland, an equal blend and balance.
The Celtic influence is apparent in the record opener “Bring Out Your Dead”, vocalist Louise Holden’s warm and worldly voice singing great lines like ‘there’s a world outside your skin’ while the band even adds horns that move this cut beyond borders that lie to the East or West. “About a Bird in an Airport Terminal” is an ambient breakup song about one animal trapped, another animal escaping, and a fine sample of lyrics both straight-forward, and ambiguous.
“Crosses” is a dreamy cut with thick and haunting harmonies while a sloppy trombone introduces “Trouble”, a cut extracted from Bourbon Street to score an uninvited mishap; the brass work on the track is fantastic. Those haunting harmonies return for the closer “Leisureplex” where Holden’s voice comes quaint and quiet over a soft bed of instrumentation. Giving Celtic or even World music a touch of Roots, and Roots music a touch of the World, I Draw Slow is an instrumentally quiet and lyrically picturesque record, serving as a method to expand its fans musical minds.
