Founding member of the wonderful Mekons and also the Waco Brothers, Jon Langford’s new album Four Lost Souls was recorded in The Shoals, Alabama with members of the Swampers in just four dark days following the U.S. election.

It is a record of pure Americana, not just because of where it was recorded or who played on it, but because it is beyond the news of the day. It is a travelogue of sorts; it goes to a place where the differences between country, soul, blues, and rock-and-roll are blown aside by the warm languid breezes and we’re looking forward to it immensely – it is out on September 22nd via Bloodshot Records.

For now though, the first taste comes with Fish Out Of Water, listen below.
