¶  "Dead Confederate don’t change their template very much on the group’s third full-length, In the Marrow, still favoring dirge-like, guitar-driven, slow-burning grunge epics that blend Pink Floyd atmospherics with Nirvana attitude and maybe a touch of Neil Young’s ragged glory, and the group definitely isn’t in any kind of hurry to stick a song in heavy rotation anywhere on the radio. That’s no doubt a good thing, since nothing in this set caters to the commercial end of things, although that doesn’t mean that In the Marrow isn’t commercial.
¶  It’s imminently listenable, even strangely fascinating, and it’s an album that isn’t in too big of a hurry at all, choosing to unwind at its own pace, with nothing that really tries to guide people to the dancefloor. All of this gives In the Marrow an odd grandeur, as if these mostly sludge-paced tracks are after their own concerns, and they sound big, solid, and immutable, going where they’re going in whatever time it takes them to get there. The opener, “Slow Poisons,” one of the highlights, is epic and sprawling. “Dead Poetry,” another highlight, is smart post-grunge grunge. “Bleed-Through” sounds like a cover of a lost Kurt Cobain song, with singer Hardy Morris even sounding eerily like Cobain. Only the last two tracks on the album really break out of the template a little bit, with “Big City Life” and “Winter Waters” both featuring guitars that chime more than they growl, and they might almost be mistaken for ballads on an album full of molasses-paced guitar drone epics. This is an interesting album, one that will reward repeated listening, but one can’t help but think that it’s a transitional album, and that Dead Confederate are building to something even bigger and more balanced down the road." Recommandé!

Details:
¶  The LP version of In The Marrow includes an insert for a free digital download of the full album plus 2 exclusive bonus tracks.
¶  Please welcome In the Marrow, the magnificent new album from Athens, Georgia’s Dead Confederate. It’s been more than two years since the band’s last full-length, Sugar, the follow-up to the lauded debut, Wrecking Ball, both released by The Artists Organization. But that isn’t to say the gears of Dead Confederate haven’t been humming. Since Sugar, Dead Confederate has navigated the departure of longtime drummer, Jason Scarboro; performed Neil Young’s Tonight’s the Night up and down the East Coast to much acclaim; toured nationally and overseas; released the Sunday Archive Series (18 unreleased tracks provided to fans for free over 18 weeks); and written and recorded In the Marrow as well as last December’s fantastic Peyote People EP, all while tackling individual pursuits.
¶  Hardy Morris has written, recorded and performed with Diamond Rugs, the rock ‘n’ roll outfit featuring Deer Tick’s John McCauley and Ian St. Pe of the Black Lips, among others. He also recorded a solo album as T. Hardy Morris, which you will hopefully hear sooner than later. Guitarist Walker Howle has followed his passion for visual art, in addition to writing and performing some of the strangest and most beautiful folk music one has ever heard as Tia Madre. Bassist Brantley Senn has focused his efforts on running the band’s new label, Spiderbomb Records, while staying active as a recording engineer. As with previous Dead Confederate albums, Brantley shouldered a lot of the production for In the Marrow, as well as last December’s Peyote People EP. John Watkins has provided his efforts on keys as a session musician with a number of great bands, including recording with Ian St. Pe’s new solo project, the Fixed Focus.
¶  Back to the record at hand: In the Marrow was fashioned in phases over sixth months with David Barbe at Athens’ Chase Park Transduction between the end of 2011 and the summer of 2012, Dead Confederate’s third full-length effort is the best yet. From the swampy opening bass line in “Slow Poisons” to the ethereal coda of “Winter Waters,” In the Marrow demonstrates a band in control of an inimitable drawl tethered between the visceral power of Wrecking Ball and the polished menace of Sugar. This newfound poise empowered Brantley to rework two demos from the Sunday Archive Series, the aforementioned “Slow Poisons” and “Dead Poetry,” both of which shine on an album bursting with highlights.
¶  “When I heard them again for the first time in years,” he says, “I immediately began rearranging them because I realized the band had grown into being capable of performing them, which made me very happy because those songs captured a very unique and troubling time in my life.”
¶  The advent of In the Marrow also signals the return of a galvanized live act. Those who saw the band’s recent two-night stand at the Earl in Atlanta, Georgia, left the venue brimming with vigor. Seasoned followers couldn’t help but think of Dead Confederate’s early days, in part due to the addition of new drummer Nick Sterchi (the Bohannons). His arrival sees the live show maintaining and exploiting the bombast of the original lineup. Sidenote: While on the subject of drumming, one would be remiss to forget J.J. Bower, whose nuanced playing highlights In the Marrow. In short, the band is hitting stride in the studio and on the stage.
¶  When Hardy was asked about Dead Confederate’s plans for 2013 beyond In the Marrow, he answered, “The plan is to tour and hit the festival circuit and release another recording before the end of the year.”  Exactly what you would expect from such a hardworking outfit—one that has the body of work to show for it. Enjoy it all while you can.

¶  Athens, Georgia’s Dead Confederate will release their next studio album In the Marrow on April 16. Since the band’s last studio album over two years ago, the band has parted ways with longtime drummer, Jason Scarboro, performed Neil Young’s Tonight’s the Night up and down the East Coast and released a series of stray recordings.
¶  In the Marrow was recorded in phases over sixth months with David Barbe at Athens’ Chase Park Transduction between the end of 2011 and the summer of 2012. The album features some new sonic colors, too: As the band explains:

¶  All of the members of Dead Confederate stayed busy during the group’s recording hiatus. Frontman Hardy Morris has also written, recorded and performed with Diamond Rugs, the rock ‘n’ roll outfit featuring Deer Tick’s John McCauley and Ian St. Pe of the Black Lips, among others. He also recorded a forthcoming solo album as T. Hardy Morris, while guitarist Walker Howle has followed his passion for visual art, in addition to writing and performing folk music as Tia Madre. Meanwhile, bassist Brantley Senn has focused his efforts on running the band’s new label, Spiderbomb Records, while staying active as a recording engineer.
