Palo Santo (EXPANDED EDITION)
Released April 10 2007
Matador’s first release from Austin’s Shearwater was a completely refurbished edition of their critically acclaimed–and frankly magnificent–2006 album, Palo Santo. The band re-recorded 5 of the 11 tracks on the album, and this expanded edition features new cover art, deluxe packaging, and a bonus disc with 8 tracks.
Palo Santo is a soaring, vast multi-instrumental song-cycle. Jonathan Meiburg’s vocals and songwriting recall bands as diverse as Roxy Music and Talk Talk. But this is unabashedly ROCK music, anchored by Thor Harris’s mighty drums.
