The Truehearts (from the album Songs for Spike available as a self-release)
Space travel are among the vacation plans for The Truehearts as they seek a spaceship exit in “Milky Way” and find a parking spot in no-man’s land with “32ndStreet”. Songs for Spike, the recent release from The Truehearts, collects travelogues alongside tales of love and life, opening the album on an optimistic first step with “Won’t It Be Something”, stomping out reggae-dosed rock in “Hey Hey”, hand-jiving a beat for “Mamzelle Marie”, and standing proud by a personal resume on “Sunshine and Violets”.
Calling East Nashville home, The Truehearts tapped local sound guru Dave Coleman to produce, backing Songs for Spikewith Pete Pulkrabek (drums) and Brian Hinchliffe (bass) with cameos from banjoman Richard Bailey (The Steeldrivers) and Paul Niehaus (Calexico). The Truehearts slowly unravel rhythms from the dream textures of “Let It Sing” and let guitar notes sparkle like fireflies for “Late July” as Songs for Spikeexits with the dramatic musical mood swings of “Goodbye”.
