Railroad Earth is releasing their new album “Last of the Outlaws” today. That’s right: for the first time in three years, Railroad Earth has fresh and unique tracks available for download or purchase on CD or vinyl. Their seventh studio album reflects the band’s last twelve years together with its ambitious composition and reminiscent story telling.
Relix Magazine has described “Last of the Outlaws” as “…beautifully, seamlessly weaving through distinct movements and melodies that cover the gamut of styles and emotions.”
Railroad Earth’s music is always vivid and alive, ranging from spacey twang to soulful, melancholy and sinister. These guys bring you down-home and then shoot you to the moon with their cheerful fiddle riffs and all-to-familiar lyrics. They will croon you lullabies and then send you spinning and stomping, grinning all the while. Railroad Earth sings of card games and hunting trips and nostalgia and love. Folk music with a shot of fresh air. Bluegrass with soul.
Their new track “Chasin’ a Rainbow” off of “Last of the Outlaws” is available for your listening pleasure at http://www.railroadearth.com/lastoftheoutlaws.
