Dawes On World Cafe
Originally published on Wed December 28, 2011 7:30 am
Although Dawes' members have only been together since 2009, the L.A. band's romantic roots rock sounds like the product of an entirely different era.
Dawes' first album, North Hills — named after the neighborhood where the band's members grew up — came out two years ago to widespread acclaim. Its latest album, Nothing Is Wrong, continues in the same vein, with heartfelt lyrics, tight harmonies, and a vibe reminiscent of music from another part of L.A. — Laurel Canyon, the neighborhood that gave rise to the '60s Americana sound of classic records from the likes of Jackson Browne.
