Piebald Accidental Gentlemen on Limited Edition Colored LP
Piebald’s 2004 LP All Ears, All Eyes, All The Time and their final album, 2007’s Accidental Gentlemen (both originally released via Side One Dummy) are getting the limited edition colored vinyl treatment courtesy of Shop Radio Cast.
"There's definitely a human feeling in this record," explains Piebald guitarist/vocalist Travis Shettel. "Like most of the Piebald back catalog which dates back to 1995, it's an album that was largely tracked to analog tape, foregoing the preferred computer-based methods of recording these days. When you compare it to many other records on the market, they sound like a weird robot machine playing songs that may or may not be good. This album sounds like human beings."
And it's that personal nature that's the charm and truth of the band's swansong Accidental Gentlemen, an album title that partially admits to Piebald's admission of a few faults. "The recording style was a little more haphazard than our previous albums, but in a way I think it reflects the kind of people we are," adds Shettel. "We're gentlemen at heart, but a bit sloppy by nature. We're coming from a sort-of losers' standpoint, trying to win."
