When you listen to the soulful harmonies on the new album from the band Dawes you would guess that the guys were from Alabama, not California. Dawes is one part The Band, one part Eagles with a little country mixed in for good measure. Not a bad list of names to be compared to, if you ask me. When my pals Josh Moore and Jason Ross put the record on the other night, Dawes became an instant classic. The good news is the California quartet is out and about touring with San Diego’s Delta Spirit, check them out if you have a chance. (Note to NYers: Dawes is playing Bowery Ballroom on May 22nd.) Two tracks from Dawes’ self titled album after the jump.
