Delines, The, 'Colfax' LP

Finally available on vinyl, the 2014 debut album from The Delines, Colfax is a stunning collection of songs with the intimacy of a midnight confessional. Like a beat-up Dusty Springfield, Colfax has the skid row heart of Tom Waits, the street-tough weariness of early Rickie Lee Jones, and the dreaminess of Mazzy Star. The Delines feature vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations), songwriter/guitarist Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine), the keyboard work of Jenny Conlee-Drizos (The Decemberists) as well as fellow Portlanders Sean Oldham, Freddy Trujillo (Richmond Fontaine) and Tucker Jackson (The Minus 5) on pedal steel. Reviews were great: Uncut 9/10, Irish Times 4 stars, Q 4 stars, The Line of Best Fit 8.5/10
