Burnside Album Details
Matt Harlan, Raven Hotel
Raven Hotel, the third CD from Matt Harlan, hangs together like a mural illustrating the urban images of daily life with pastoral reverence. Recorded in Austin, TX this collection marks a return to the sonic landscape Harlan introduced with his debut album with Rich Brotherton (Robert Earl Keen) back in the producer's chair. The literary threads that tied Harlan's debut to his sophomore release, Bow and Be Simple continue to twist throughout Raven Hotel, with stories that travel just as straight to the heart of matters via his characteristic observations and poetic minimalism.
