Its the kind of music that the Carhartt-wearing, hard-working, industrial beer-drinking, regular Americans would listen to the ones who could end up on an episode of TVs Dirty Jobs. Its a little raw, a bit loud, unapologetic and honest. Its blue collar rock and roll and its something that Denvers Strange Americans are crafting with both brawn and finesse, like a hot rod mechanic bringing back an old barn find.
In a sense, Strange Americans are rescuing something from the rust pile straight-forward, no frills rock and roll, and a matching aesthetic that is heavy on songwriting and storytelling, but presented with reverb-drenched punch and passion the way The Band or Crazy Horse would have done it.
Strange Americans first began in 2009 through a series of Craigslist ads and mutual acquaintances. The group, which released its much applauded debut full-length A Royal Battle in 2012, released its sophomore album That Kind of Luster in September of 2014 . The ten-song, 45-minute rocker which the group began working on in the summer of 2013, showcases a band that has dialed in an authentic, raucous live show and somehow convey that same energy in the studio as well.
