Editorial Reviews

Clothesline Revival is all about exploring new frontiers in Americana roots music. From the imagination and inspiration of Conrad Praetzel, They Came from Somewhere is a collection of original instrumentals, ranging from lazy blues ballads to rompous steam-powered jigs, that combine rough hewn beats, emotionally charged atmospherics and roots instrumentation. Featuring Praetzel (acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, banjo, keyboards), blues legend Charlie Musselwhite (harmonica), Robert Powell (lap and pedal steel guitars), and Chris Rovetti (fiddle), They Came From Somewhere is Praetzel's first collection of all original compositions in over ten years. The first two Clothesline Revival CDs, Of My Native Land and Long Gone, received critical acclaim and were celebrated on syndicated NPR.

5.0 out of 5 stars clothesline on the long drive July 1, 2010
By Max
Format:Audio CD
Yesterday I had to drive from one end of our state to the other. I took with me the new Clothesline Revival CD, They Came From Somewhere, and their previous release, Long Gone (from 2005). I've been digging the new album in headphones and wanted to see if it sounded equally great in the car. Not everything that thrills me for near listening makes a good companion for driving, but From Somewhere stretched out and proved itself to be a wonderful miler. The soundtrack suited all the changing views, and offered friendly companionship. I brought the earlier album because I had a hunch that these two records might form a unit, and they do seem to speak to each other in an interesting way (one highlighted by remarkable vocal performances, the other almost entirely voiceless). I'd played Long Gone steadily for a few years and then set it aside for a rest. I was about ready to return to it, and it sounds even better than I expected - and I recall it being great. (If you've missed Long Gone, I recommend it highly.)

But about They Came From Somewhere: I really admire the way these songs are built. The arrangements and production allow me to float into the layers of the tracks and find continued interest in there after many listenings. New things keep showing up. There's no sense of a clever producer loading the tunes down with decorations and trendy clutter. The architecture of the arrangements is so smart, so elegant, that everything serves the groove. This is definitely Roots music but what is growing from those roots has a unique and invigorating life to it. How the overall sound manages to be surprising yet feel utterly natural is a wonderful mystery. This record seems both old in a nicely worn way and attractively shiny as if from the near future - it's a future that invites me toward it.

Not quite as good as Vols 1&2, but still an excellent CD. I would give it 4 1/2 or 5 stars.

Don't play this while driving around, you'll probably forget where it was you were going. There is even a couple good youtube videos from the CD.

This is a group that I heard on NPR and had to do some research on it. I purchased the album had have not been disappointed as the songs are very eclectic and fun. I would high recommend this album I just wish they had a few more that I could have to listen to while I am working.
