Shoebox Letters announce the release of Car Crash Life, an eight song mini-album featuring Americana and Roots Rock perfectly brewed for your playlists.
Seven of the eight tracks were written or co-written by Shoebox Letters’ founder Dennis Winslow who also adds vocals and guitars. Stephanie Cox trades vocals with Winslow throughout the album, often switching verses to great effect.
But don’t kid yourself, more than any previous Shoebox Letters release, this is a guitar album. Winslow, Greg Paul, and drummer Brian David Willis overdub guitar after guitar to build the smoldering tracks. Paul adds a stinging guitar solo to the sassy and suggestive “Drinking Till I Can’t Walk Straight” which features Cox on the lead vocal.
Car Crash Life was recorded in Portland, OR by Paul and Nashville, TN by Willis. Willis mixed seven of the eight tracks and Paul mixed the title track. Focus tracks include:
#1 - Runnin’ For Daylight
#3 - Drinking Till I Can’t Walk Straight
#4 - Takeoff
#7 - Something I Don’t Know
