September 2, 2008 Mexican Summer

A dazzling combination of sloe-eyed country ballads, heavy psychedelic staring contest, and shamanistic chants forms the basis of Headdress’ debut album, Turquoise. Reissued from a limited CD-R, Turquoise captures the sound of this young Austin duo in the midst of the desert evening, threading lonesome guitar leads across the cosmos. Far from the freak-folk banner and the artists who’ve been curdling its once sweet waters, Headdress plays with a solemn, measured dedication to the loneliest, windswept blues, American to its core and reaching out to connect with similarly lost souls. Mexican Summer offers this stunning collection in a one-time pressing of 500 copies.
