ENGLISH: (Español mas abajo)

We proudly present our fourth long play album, recorded along Isi Rockin and Nuria LaCruz at the double bass and drums. They are our bandmates at The Sara Gee & Ramblin Matt Four. If you know us you know that we are partial to record our music playing live and adding no overdubs to the recordings. In this occasion we gathered together around a Zoom HN2 Stereo Recorder and got the tape rolling, we got the album in six hours. We are haunted by the thought that our music will "lose the spirit" if we record otherwise, we love that dusty sound, you know?

For the first time on record we can hear Ramblin Matt playing Lap Steel Guitar and Mandolin and features five new original compositions and covers of Hank Williams, Guy Clark, Lou Ann Barton and Rolling Stones, giving the album a highway feeling, helped by the fact that Sara finally got her driving license (Right On). As final complement we are happy to count with the awesome photographies of Phil Bebbington for the cover art. Phil captures perfectly the spirit and ghosts of the old America that so well fit with our music.

This album comes out at the same time that we are nominated to represent Spain in the 2016 edition of the Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards that will take place in Jefferson, Texas in October. Definitely this album brings us closer to the scents of southern melodies and traditional country and blues music, the music that inspires us to create our own. We truly hope that you will enjoy listening as we did recording it because, at the end of the day, the music is for you, for the people that supports and follow us. Our best wishes of health and prosperity to you all. May the angels and demons of Rock n Roll be always with you.

ESPAÑOL

Nos alegra mucho presentar nuestro cuarto disco de larga duración, grabado como The Sara Gee & Ramblin Matt Four, el nombre que usamos cuando nos acompañan como sección rítmica nuestros grandes amigos y músicos, Isi Rockin al contrabajo y Nuria LaCruz a la semibatería y maracas. Los que nos conocéis sabéis que somos partidarios de grabar siempre tocando en directo, creemos que nuestra música "pierde el espíritu" polvoriento que nos gusta que tenga si grabamos por separado, y en este trabajo siguiendo con nuestra óptica habitual grabamos todo el disco en una sesión de seis horas tocando en directo alrededor de un grabador stereo Zoom HN2.

Es el primer disco en el que Matt graba canciones tocando Lap Steel Guitar y Mandolina y presenta cinco nuevas composiciones originales y cinco versiones de Guy Clark, Lou Ann Barton, Rolling Stones y dos de Hank Williams lo cual aporta al disco un aire de carretera, coincidiendo con la obtención del carnet de conducir de Sara (Right On!) y complementado por la estupenda fotografía de Phil Bebbington, fotógrafo originario de Bath (UK) que captura el espíritu de la vieja América en su trabajo perfectamente y que nos ha cedido sus fotografías para ilustrar nuestro trabajo.

Este lanzamiento coincide con nuestra nominación para representar a España en la edición de 2016 de los Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards que se celebran en Jefferson, Texas en Octubre y definitivamente este trabajo nos acerca mucho a las melodías sureñas y del country tradicional, con un sonido efectivo y añejo que impregna el disco de principio a final. Esperamos que disfrutéis tanto escuchándolo como nosotros lo hicimos al grabarlo, a fin de cuentas...la música es para vosotros y por vosotros. Salud y prosperidad para todos y todas. Que los angeles y demonios del Rock n Roll sean con vosotros.
