Brand-New Release from Preacher Boy!

Six for Three

Preacher Boy

In cart Not available Out of stock

Possibly the rawest and most immediate album of Preacher Boy's long career. An escape to a river in the mountains. 6 new songs written in 3 days, rich with the sights and sounds of the wild—rushing rapids, lone ghost pines, abandoned gold mines, gliding eagles, bleached white bones. Back in the city, the songs are tracked in a single day; all

Possibly the rawest and most immediate album of Preacher Boy's long career. An escape to a river in the mountains. 6 new songs written in 3 days, rich with the sights and sounds of the wild—rushing rapids, lone ghost pines, abandoned gold mines, gliding eagles, bleached white bones. Back in the city, the songs are tracked in a single day; all live, no overdubs. 4 mics. Funky little ribbon mic on the vocal. Another mic on a turn-of-the-century Washburn parlor guitar fitted with a 1960 DeArmond pickup. Third mic on a National amp putting out the pickup signal. Fourth mic, something for the stomping. "Six for Three" is country blues in the most literal of ways—raw, real, wild.

California’s finest purveyors of hyper-literate garage rock return with their first new music since 2019’s debut release, “Black Rain.” Poet Robert Lavett Smith’s lyrics are as bittersweetly poignant as ever, and while Preacher Boy’s guitar sounds may be edgier than on the debut, they’re counterbalanced by the singular sound of a Vox Continental

California’s finest purveyors of hyper-literate garage rock return with their first new music since 2019’s debut release, “Black Rain.” Poet Robert Lavett Smith’s lyrics are as bittersweetly poignant as ever, and while Preacher Boy’s guitar sounds may be edgier than on the debut, they’re counterbalanced by the singular sound of a Vox Continental organ, keeping things firmly in classic garage rock territory. Most distinctive is the evolution of the band’s groove, made possible by the introduction of 13-year-old drum phenom Clara Bay Marinelli Watkins, who delivers 2 minutes and 34 seconds of percolating percussion to underpin the poetic proto-punk proceedings.

Two award-winning singer-songwriters deliver an EP of melancholic Americana written and recorded during a series of Brooklyn-to-Nashville-and-back road trips.

Two award-winning singer-songwriters deliver an EP of melancholic Americana written and recorded during a series of Brooklyn-to-Nashville-and-back road trips.

Bryan “Park” Miller and Christopher “Preacher Boy” Watkins first started writing songs together in the early 2000s, and began making regular trips between Brooklyn and Nashville shortly thereafter.

Together and separately they’ve achieved significant success. Park is a two-time Nashville Songwriter’s Association honoree. Preach has earned a Gold Record for his work with Rick Rubin and Eagle-Eye Cherry.

In between outside projects, they made some time to record something for themselves. Nicknamed “Sally”—and now officially titled "Drive In"—you might say this EP has been more than a decade in the making.

Following in the footsteps of The Band, Bob Dylan, and Townes Van Zandt, the album’s sound is kindred spirit to artists such as Alejandro Escovedo, Steve Earle, and Lucinda Williams, while comparisons to contemporaries like Old Crow Medicine Show or Gillian Welch wouldn’t be far off the mark.

Park’s pure tenor sits at the center of the alternatively buoyant and melancholy sound, while Preach’s unmistakable slide work on National Resophonic leads a multi-instrumental chorus that includes Telecaster, mandolin, harmonica, piano, and more.

Ultimately, the “Drive In” EP is an expression of the magic that can happen when two veteran singer-songwriters who’ve logged a lot of miles together take the time to record a handful of their own poignant and powerful songs. For those who like their Americana spiked with a bit of pathos and poetry, take a trip to the Drive In.

Drive In, the new EP from Park & Preach, is available for download now from Coast Road Records.

“Everyone is honest about fearing clowns and the sky, and the soil, are the same shade of brown and all the new brides share the same off-white gown and baby, there ain't no right side of this town” —from “No Right Side of this Town”

Trippy, funky, atmospheric instrumental electronica layered with live electric guitars.

Patches is the brainchild of a former Italian soccer player turned producer-composer, who spends half the year in a villa outside Florence, and the other half in California wine country. The album is a collaboration between Patches and Alt-Blues artist Preacher Boy, who provides live electric guitars to the album's 12 tracks. Patches counts as foundational influences albums such as The Beastie Boy's Ill Communication, Massive Attack's Mezzanine, Moby's Everything is Wrong, Daft Punk's Homework, Tricky's Maxinquaye, UNKLE's Psyence Fiction, and Portishead's Dummy.
