The Furious Seasons
Home All Day, Home All Night
David Steinhart has been one of the stalwarts of the Los Angeles indie folk scene since the 80s, either solo or as a member of Pop Art, Smart Brown Handbag, and now The Furious Seasons. Such activity didn’t even stop him to run his own, Stonegarden Records.
The quality of music was always there, but in The Furious Seasons trio format (Jeff Steinhart, P.A. Nelson and himself) it seems that the latest album, Home All Day, Home All Night takes the music one step further in making sure that the legacy of the California folk rock/singer songwriter sound of the 70s lives on in its best light.
Shimmering acoustic guitars and assured vocals all over the place, but above all there are some excellent melodies to wrap around, showing what being rooted into a sound and having experience within it really means when it is transferred into sound.
And that knowledge and experience really show, particularly when you have to do your recording in uncertain times. As the band put it themselves, “during a year of pandemic, political craziness, isolation, and urgent social justice issues, we found a way to write and record 11 songs that cover a variety of subject matters, in 4 different studios, with two producers.”
In the end, we still get a uniform quietly pleasing sound, that fits in perfectly, like a light blanket at nights when the autumn starts to creep in.
