Leave your map and lose your bearings in the swirling sonic forest of The Deep Dark Woods. The band returns from the wilderness with Jubilee, a celebration of community, camaraderie and feverish cabin creativity. With Jubilee, The Deep Dark Woods revel in the jangly, freewheeling days of psychedelic and electric folk while keeping their compass aligned with the magnetic, hypnotic north.
Made in a cabin in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains near Bragg Creek, Alberta, Jubilee journeys through folk and rock history, from California to the UK, from the 1970s to the present day. The album nods to genre pioneers such as The Byrds and Fairport Convention before heading into altogether new territory of soundscapes that bend and fluctuate underfoot. Jubilee moves the yardstick with its rolling layers of specialized keys, organs and analog rarities (e.g., novachord, celesta, vibraphone, and more) first used in the early days of psychedelic synth experimentation, and the results sound at once in and out of modern time.
“a timeless, organic sound. It feels weather beaten and worn in, like a great album from the Band.” – Billboard
“The Place I Left Behind exceeds even the highest of expectations and remarkably pays tribute to the sound that defines our country’s musical heritage without sounding dated. the type of record that ignores seasons and trends, for the simpler and much loftier ambition of timelessness.” – Herohill
“A Canadian band whose multipart harmonies are more pristine than Gram Parsons and the Byrds might‚Äôve dreamed possible.” – Nashville Scene
“The Place I Left Behind is another wholly satisfying album that builds upon past successes and carries the band forward as one of the country’s finest roots acts.” –Exclaim!
