Jeffrey Foucault will release his new album Blood Brothers on 22nd June via Blueblade Records.
A departure from the darkness of his last outing, the excellent Salt As Wolves, and featuring contributions from Tift Merrit and Milk Carton Kids’ Kenneth Pattengale, Blood Brothers sets blues aside to pull together strands of country, R&B, gospel, rock’n’roll, and folk in a series of delicate small-canvas portraits.
With an all too rare tenderness and concern for the human condition, Foucault is paying constant attention to the places where the mundane and the holy merge like water. There’s a touch more light coming through the window with this record, a certain gentleness in play, with layers of backing vocals sung by women – including Foucault’s wife Kris Delmhorst, as well as the various partners of the band – adding hue and shade.
