Few musicians on this Earth manage to catch the attention of Poule headquarters like main man Dougie Poole out of New York here does. His wonderful riffs and dreamy lyrics ranging from on- and offline romance, freelance jobs and waiting for your MacOS to unfreeze, to journeying back home for a funeral neatly capture this particular moment in Western metropolitan history, while coming in hot and heavy, wrapped in laid back, crisp indie country sounds.
He released a great debut album in 2017, but really found his verve and rhythm on The Freelancer’s Blues that came out in 2020. This year he followed up with a fantastic record going by The Rainbow Wheel of Death. For the first time ever, he will be playing a European tour this month, kicking off in Paris, Oct 24, at Les Nautes. Further dates include Copenhagen, London, Bristol and whole bunch more of UK dates – all right here.
Attached below is the beautiful track Beth David Cemetery, off his current album The Rainbow Wheel of Death, out now on Wharf Cat Records. Tickets are on sale now.
