The Malingerers, release their upcoming third album ‘The Rivers Will Flow’ on Fat & Bulbous Records in March 2018. The seven-track LP and will see a slightly more acoustic style but still blending vintage dust bowl era Americana seamlessly with British Folk and as usual taking in more than a sprinkling of early Jazz and Blues influences.
Whilst the band have clearly been heavily influenced by the music from the other side of the pond, the songs and lyrics all draw on their own personal experiences, history and of course a liberal helping of British cynicism.
In order to give the album a more vintage feel, the band once again opted to record at the all analogue Gizzard Studios in London. The songs were recorded live in single takes (including vocals) straight to 2” tape, like they used to in the good old days, giving the album a lovely, punchy, raw, authentic sound which is so often missing in this digital age.
