Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
The hair flying rock 'n' roll of J. Roddy Walston & The Business is back with the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's Essential Tremors. Entitled Destroyers of the Soft Life, the new record came to life in their own Richmond, VA recording studio and was co-produced by the band and Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty, Built To Spill). The album is ushered in by the raging, "The Wanting," the quartet's first new song in four years. "I personally fell in love with writing music again," Walston explained. "It took awhile but once I realized I had room to try things that I had never tried before, I became addicted to the process." He elaborated further by explaining how "The Wanting" describes the relationship of an estranged father and son: "Even though it is a dark song with a brutal ending, I find hope and beauty in the idea of these two people that had a shared sense of both regret and longing for each other."
