Review by John Noyd
June 2013

Like going to your favorite watering-hole, Dawes picks you up, dusts you off and spins you around the saw-dust dance-floor; reassuring, reminiscing and somehow rescuing you from yourself. Imparting hard-trodden insights in poignant biographical lyrics, this tightly-knit band delivers angelic consolation dipped in blues-tethered hesitations and modest honesty laundered in rock-solid hollers, underscored in romantic arrangements, powered by rousing beats and backed by sterling prairie-rock guitar and eloquent country-pop piano. Weathered, leveled-headed and resolute, brimming in refreshing deep breaths and sympathetic sighs, “Stories,” explores the sordid mournful life, accurately encapsulating common experiences we all hold dear with a keen, narrative clarity that balances broad proclamations against intimate details. The earnestly curious Dawes plays Madison’s Barrymore Theater July 12th with the captivating folk-duo Shovels and Rope.
