First performance of our HARD CHARGIN’ album. With guests Andy Happel (violin) and Duncan Watt (keys).
A high-energy power trio reveling in quirky twists and turns, fast changes, and extended forms, Dreadnaught has a recorded sound built around deep-focus detail. “As a group, we’re not writing songs in the traditional sense, not trying to get the world to sing along,” explains Habib. “We like to make people want to dial in and pay attention, to make them laugh.”
The band’s new album HARD CHARGIN’ is destined to do both. The album’s tracks recall Rush or a sillier Fugazi (the first “That’s the Way You Do It”) one moment, and Willie Nelson or a wonderfully befuddled George Jones (the second “That’s the Way You Do It”) the next. Some tracks come out screaming in full Fred Frith-style madness (“Express Delight”), while some coo and groove their beautiful bassy, brassy way into your ear with the playfulness of Frank Zappa or Steely Dan (“Bo-Leg-Ba”).
