MM Recommends...Doc Feldman & The LD50

Doc Feldman & The LD50 officially released Sundowning At The Station a few days ago via This Is American Music.

It was recorded in Lexington, KY with help from friend and sometimes collaborator (and oft-celebrated MM fave), James Jackson Toth aka Wooden Wand. The album is the singer-songwriter’s first since the breakup of his last band Good Saints.

After a few listens we are willing to stick our necks out and say if there is any justice in the musical word then this is destined to become a masterpiece of its kind. A classic of bruised, bleak, folk and Southern gothica that begs for company in the shape of a bottle of liquor and a dark, lonesome night of what-might-have-beens.

It runs the full gamut of emotions from the beautiful Let It Go to the weary Battle Hymn and the uncompromising Cold Tile Floor – in fact the whole record, from first to last, grips like a musical vice, demanding attention and rewarding in turn through every little nuance of sound.

In fact, this may be damn near perfect…Order via Bandcamp here or This Is American Music here.
