Photog Mike Hollis was on hand for The Orbans’ CD release show on Friday at Lola’s Saloon, with openers the Quaker City Nighthawks, from Fort Worth, and Dallas’ The Roomsounds. The Orbans’ album, When We Were Wild, is a shack-shaker, full of propulsive rhythms, shimmering, lambent melodies, and the kind of jingle-jangle that established the Old 97’s, Jayhawks, and Drive-By Truckers –– and Americana music in general –– as legitimate mainstream forces. The album was recorded partially in Austin, partially in L.A. with producer Adam Lasus, who’s done work with Yo La Tengo and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and who connected with The Orbans via Fort Worth-cum-Los Angeleno Jordan Richardson, who plays drums in EPIC RUINS and Ben Harper’s Relentless7. The Orbans also recently learned that one of their songs will be featured on NPR’s Song of the Day segment. For more on the band, pick up a Weekly in a couple of weeks.
