Rain On Dust is RF Shannon's third album in three years. It expands on their desert soul sound, which has also been described as deconstructed Americana, mellow psych, and shoegaze country. This album is their first with Keeled Scales, coming quickly on the heels of Trickster Blues, (released in May 2018 via Cosmic Dreamer).
With this album they've swum even deeper into the great underground rivers of American song and have put to tape timeless, memorable songs that sink in on first listen. Instant classic "Wild Rose Pass" has always been right there. "Angeline" and "Don't Be Shy" have nods to 60s rock, with deep choruses, shuffled drums, and gorgeous harmonies. "Ballad of a Thin Place" is a woozy dark ballad that would have been right at home on the "Rolling Thunder Revue." RF Shannon is a band that defies easy classification and bridges multiple genres, not an easy feat. At the heart of these songs is strong songwriting and musicianship. Fans of Bill Withers, Woods, Jackson C. Frank, Knife in the Water, and The Band would be right home at with this album.
