Pablo: Hey Luci
New York indie group Pablo recently broke out with their long awaited follow up to the beloved debut “Half The Time”
“Long nights will come along, I’ve gotten to give in a bit” are lyrics that help to sum up Pablo’s second album “There’s Rope To Leave”, out now.
The album leads the listener down a wooded path of cutthroat songwriting loaded with wonderful gems of piano, bass and drum fills, a myriad of astute lyricism and vocal melodies, as a dark current of mystery and optimism washes over the listener.
Talking 1 1/2 years to complete, Rope to Leave began as an 8 track bedroom recording in Pablo front man Paul Schalda’s home but ended at Levon Helm’s upstate New York recording studio. After a brief parting from the band during some tumultuous times Will Schalda was back on board with his brother and ready to lend his piano wizardry to the sketches that Paul had been working on in his apartment.
Enter Justin Guip long time friend and collaborator. Still hot from his recent Grammy award for sound engineering on Levon Helm’s 2008 “Dirt Farmer”. Justin’s enormous drum sound and colossal fills were the third link to the opening sessions behind “There’s Rope To Leave”. Rounding out the players is Dan Foder on Bass, the backbone to the highly regarded and well-revered group, The Budos Band, dropping some skull ringed-black waves of bass bombs.
Having toured with Kevin Devine, Jennifer Oconner, and Koufax,Straylight Run, The Hush Sound, and Spitalfield all across America, Pablo and crew are ready to hit the road again. Check out local NYC area dates being added alllll the time. [bio]
