Burnside Album Details
Maldives, The, Muscle for the Wing CD
Described as having a transcendent live show by indie radio touchstone, KEXP, their debut full-length, 2009’s Listen to the Thunder (Mt. Fuji, produced by Grammy Award-winner Kory Kruckenberg), was the culmination of years of playing together at every kind of gig imaginable and a faithful document of who The Maldives are as a live band. This time around the band took a different approach by working with Shawn Simmons (The Head and The Heart, Grand Hallway, Lemolo) who brought the band’s assembled creativity together in a different way and explores their combined vision with expertly crafted songs that will transport you to another time and place altogether. This is where songwriter Jason Dodson’s storytelling culminates into characters and places that blur the lines between fiction and nonfiction, the past and the present.
