With a familiar 1, 2, 3, 4…Elliott BROOD count in a new album cycle, Town & Country, that explores the people and places that shape our lives, wherever we call home. On part one, Town, Elliott BROOD rumble and rock over a map of all the towns and cities that are home to our experiences and imaginations, histories and future plans.
In true Elliott BROOD fashion, Town begins with “Rose City,” out today. While Windsor, ON doesn’t compete with the likes of Asbury Park or Butcher Hollow for the most famous hometown in music history, its bridges and bars have inspired some of Elliott BROOD’s most beloved songs and albums. With its deep late summer porch party and rolling rodeo rhythm, “Rose City” continues this fascination and tradition. A song is always the fastest way home.
“My northern heart is drying up down south,” goes the line in “Dried Up,” which encapsulates the collection’s through-line in its ongoing search for the right place at the right time. Cross-border life, as actual geography and as metaphor for the walls we run up against, has always been a source of frustration and inspiration. In search of a place where Cash is still King on the pedal-steel country waltz of “Paper Money,” a Canadian expat sits down in a bar in Hollywood to find his money’s no good.
Dressed in the hand-embroidered suits that bear the symbols of each of these two realms, Town & Country, Elliott BROOD hit the road once again with their brand of nitty gritty city folk. Over bridges and into barrooms, lose your way to find yourself in Elliott BROOD’s Town.
Town will be released on November 3, 2023 on Six Shooter Records.
