ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
the sonoran desert runs up the continent of north america from mexico. a dry thin finger extends into canada, and is the home to things found nowhere else in the country. amongst the cactus, antelope bush and shaggy daisies can be found wind scorpions, horned lizards, banded rattlesnakes and the darylectones.


the darylectones are a post modern acoustic duo whose music has been described as two jazz guys trying to stuff a blues singer down a well. it falls somewhere between tom waits and ry cooder in a soulful blend of world rhythms and old world sensibilities.


they have performed their original musical melange at festivals in canada and the u.s

Jay

this is emotion !
These songs come from real emotion you can feel and taste - gritty and soulful, you can feel yourself connect. voice and instruments, especially bass, just bring you in. I like it a lot better than Tom Waits. No bad songs on this one. It's hard to find stuff this good.

Mellow, engaging, solid album
Solid album, better with more listens. There are two standouts on the album, and the rest is quite good. A little grit, nice musicianship, and well written songs add up to a good listen.

CD Baby


Although it's impossible to avoid comparisons to Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen, this is by far one of the most impressive, most memorable of its sort to enter the doors of our warehouse. With a voice that growls and rumbles, coarse and rattling on the edges, the Darylectones album, "Sad Old Beautifulworld" traipses through the dark and dimly lit alleys, dive bars and even a sunny corner of a empty warehouse. But no matter how many colors and qualities the album wanders through, there is always a connecting quality, a distinctive, rusty, whiskey-toned substance that makes this album so noteworthy.

Excellent Original Music
While the lead singer's voice is reminiscent of Tom Waits it doesn't come across as imitative. Rather there is a similarity of tone which is interesting but becomes fairly irrelevant as you get into the original music. I love their use of the upper registers of the frets and occasional bottleneck guitar sounds ~ interesting music. I gave it 4 out of 5 because, like most albums, even the excellent ones, there is some uneveness in the quality of the songs. But overall, this is a 'do not miss' cd!
