On June 4th 2021, Night Beats the Texas-born brainchild of Danny Lee Blackwell will release their fifth full-length, Outlaw R&B, via Fuzz Club Records. The album arrives following the 2019 Myth of A Man LP (produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and released by Heavenly Recordings) as well as last years Thats All You Got 7. Made during the height of the California wildfires (where Blackwell currently resides), rioting in the streets and a nation in lockdown, the raucous technicolour rocknroll of Outlaw R&B is a call to rejoice in some sorely needed post-apocalyptic hedonism.
Blackwell says of the album: Outlaw R&B is music for the borderless, the free, the outcasts and the forgotten. The outlaw is the runner. Those whose minds aren't sold by perfect pitch and clean fingernails. Through this medium you can escape the confines of mental feudalism and bask in the euphoric glow of psychedelic R&B. Where the last Night Beats LP was a distinctly polished and soulful affair, Outlaw R&B sees the band return to their natural habitat: riotous, acid-fried rocknroll to lose your head to. This creative rewiring is perhaps of little surprise given the social unrest unfolding as the bulk of the album was written and recorded.
You might say that the upbeat garage-rock of Revolution feels like a long-lost 60s counter-cultural anthem but this is no anachronism. Instead, the songs radical intentions provide a perfect soundtrack for navigating your way through our current hellscape: It's a story as old as time, revolution always begins in your mind." Dedicated as the album is to outlaws past, present and future, New Day sees our current crisis through the lens of spaghetti western melodrama: New Day is my postcard from purgatory. This is the result of sleepless nights while hearing the world crumble outside my window. I sing of desperation and loss while grinning in the face of an uncertain future.
As per Pearl Charles...
Pearl Charles lives in the moment, seeking excitement whether it leads her down a dark, dusty road or into the arms of a trouble-making lover. Her songs describe late night revelry, love affairs, running away and running towards, serenading the sunrise through whirlwind stories of her native Los Angeles, the city, the canyon, the desert, and the road. On a quest to discover the truest version of herself, Charles embraces the feeling of not being settled, a person who always restlessly wants more from life and is willing to chase it, wherever it may lead her. Charles has been playing music since she was five years old. At 18, she formed country duo The Driftwood Singers with Christian Lee Hutson, singing and playing guitar and autoharp. At 22, she joined garage rock band The Blank Tapes as drummer. After two funfilled years immersed in the rock and roll lifestyle, she decided it was time to pursue her own songwriting, and began developing the songs that formed 2015s eponymous debut EP and the acclaimed 2021 album Magic Mirror. Her music career has been a chronological progression from old time music to 60s garage and psychedelia, and now to a 70s tinged disco country hybrid and 80s inspired soft yacht rock. Drawn to catchy, poppy hooks and choruses, Charles draws on what she loves about each era while developing her unique style as a musician, singer, and songwriter.
