• the dawn Wooly (LP, £24.50)

    For over a decade The Dawn has been conjuring up magical, soulful live performances with amazing grooves and stellar improvisations. On The Dawn's new endeavuor they've captured their explosive live performances in the studio. "Wooly", the new album from The Dawn not only draws from their past influences like The Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers, but has some of the pop sensibilities of Ryan Adams, quirkiness of NRBQ and the soulful vibe of 60's to retro R&B. "Wooly" has the feel and sound of a 1970's jam band classic and a lot of that is due to the freedom they gave producer Pat Stolley (co-founder of Daytrotter.com) in the studio. The Dawn have been making the jam band fest circuit in the past few years and always getting the invite back, including Summer Camp, Phases of the Moon and their own festival, "Dawn and On", which draws over 1,000 people each year.
