Since his major label debut, the groundbreaking Salesmen and Racists, Ike Reilly has been making punk/folk/blues influenced rock n roll records that lean heavily on stories of outsiders with keen details and broad strokes that insinuate a crack in the American dream. Reillys band, The Assassination, has been called one of the best live bands in America, and the body of recorded work theyve turned out has been poetic, rebellious, wholly original, and critically acclaimed.
Still, Reilly and co-producer Phil Karnats (Secret Machines, Tripping Daisy, Polyphonic Spree) felt that Reillys best takes had never been recorded. The lucidity and rhythm of Reillys performances that Karnats had witnessed in hotel rooms, backstage, and on tour buses had never been captured. I wanted to create a setting where lil Ike could sing and play guitar at the same time, with the band in the same room... no headphones and minimal isolation, says Karnats. There's always been a freshness to playing the songs together that's hard to harness when recording in the more common, modern, sense where you do rhythm tracks first, then overdubs and vocals last. This time, Ike did his thing and we developed the arrangements based on his vocal approach, cadence, phrasing, intensity and all that. I think, in the end, we ended up with some killer songs that have a strangely unique, slightly off-center, vibe. The resulting album, Crooked Love, is Reillys seventh studio album and comes out May 18, 2018 on Rock Ridge Music.
