She's seen the world Americanize, gentrify and divide
like a broken heart during a decade of touring the globe with her band Howling
Bells, now Juanita Stein returns with her first solo collection of songs about
a pre-apocalyptic America.
This isn't the America of goofy teen movies, Twinkies
and Trump, no Mam. It's that shattered dreamland Hunter S. Thompson went
looking for... It's somewhere beyond the pines of Twin Peaks at a crossroads
where Badlands met Paris, Texas. A dustball in a once great land,
reimagined whilst daydreaming as the towns and plains filtered through the
grainy dirt that is the tour bus window during laps of the USA with Coldplay
and The Killers.
These are songs from a dark-hearted country, where the
lights of Nashville twinkle in the distance as the siren song leads you into
the eternal night...
