BLOOD BROTHERS, the much-anticipated follow-up to Jeffrey Foucaults critically acclaimed 2015 album Salt As Wolves (Immaculately tailored Sometimes his songs run right up to the edge of the grandiose and hold still, and thats when hes best Close to perfection New York Times; Pure Songwriter, simple and powerful Morning Edition, NPR) is a collection of reveries, interlacing memory with the present tense to examine the indelible connections of love across time and distance. The poet Wallace Stevens wrote that technique is the proof of seriousness, and from the first suspended chord of Dishes a waltzing hymn to the quotidian details of life, which are life itself (Do the dishes / With the windows open) Foucault deftly cuts the template for the album as a whole, showing his mastery of technique as he unwinds a deeply patient collection of songs at the borderlands of memory and desire.
In two decades on the road Jeffrey Foucault has become one of the most distinctive voices in American music, refining a sound instantly recognizable for its simplicity and emotional power, a decidedly Midwestern amalgam of blues, country, rocknroll, and folk. Hes built a brick-and-mortar international touring career on multiple studio albums, countless miles, and general critical acclaim, being lauded for Stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest (The New Yorker), and described as Quietly brilliant (The Irish Times), while catching the ear of everyone from Van Dyke Parks to Greil Marcus, to Don Henley, who regularly covers Foucault in his live set. BLOOD BROTHERS is the sixth collection of original songs in a career remarkable for an unrelenting dedication to craft, and independence from trend.
