Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It is a source of constant mystery why The Walkabouts remain such a closely guarded secret in the UK, despite modest success in America and massive acclaim in Eastern Europe. Despite a 6-year layoff, band members have been busy in the interim. Leading lights Chris Eckman and Carla Torgerson collaborated for a third time as Chris and Carla on Fly High Brave Dreamers in 2007, while Eckman delivered 2 albums as one third of his Dirtmusic project, as well as producing and collaborating with Tamikrest on two excellent albums of desert blues. In addition, he found time for a solo set of songs putting music to words (in translation) written by Slovenian poet Dane Zajc (The Last Side Of The Mountain, 2008). Perhaps not the most obvious commercial move, the resulting album had a strange and ethereal beauty.

A reconvening of The Walkabouts is therefore an overdue and welcome pleasure, and Travels In The Dustland, the band's 15th studio release, and first since 2005's Acetylene, sees them ploughing a familiar furrow of gorgeous gothic Americana. As ever, songwriting honours fall to Chris Eckman, but vocals are shared equally between Eckman's rough, scratchy drawl, and Torgerson's crystal clear tones. The songs, all of which are strong, and never less than interesting, form a loose concept in four parts about a place called the 'Dustlands', which clearly represents a haunted and desolate America. Standouts include the lovely opening 'My Diviner', with Carla Torgerson in fine voice, 'The Dustlands' and 'Every River Will Burn'. In the main the songs are more subdued and reflective than on some of the band's more experimental latterday material, but the album suffers a little through slightly muddy production.

I bought this for my wife so the review is hers really. If it were up to me I'd say both the singers reminded me of other (better) artists; the songs are a touch dreary and monotonous. The album feels like it never really gets off the ground. My wife? She loves it and can't wait to get to know the album better on the long drives we'll share in the next 2 weeks on holiday. Great.
