Saturday, the 23rd of July, sees THE DIRTY SKIRTS launch their much anticipated new album, LOST IN THE FALL, at Zula Bar in Cape Town. The album was recorded at Heritage Studios in Cape Town with Brendyn Rusti Rossouw, mixed by Neal Snyman, mastered at Sterling Sound Studios in New York and released through 2 Feet, an imprint of Sheer Sound cc.
“Long. Beautiful. Complex. Real. Deep. It’s been two years of intensive work, and the last six months have been ridiculously intense. The last month, well, that’s been insane. Last week nearly broke us. We’ve given everything to this album. We’ve made music that has satisfied us deeply.” - Jeremy de Tolly.
LOST IN THE FALL is quite different from any previous offerings from THE DIRTY SKIRTS. Whether it’s an evolution or a sudden change in direction – it’s heavier in parts, and it’s deeper in content. They have written some of the most complex and interesting music of their careers so far. To them, LOST IN THE FALL is the best work they’ve ever done and it is reflected in the 12 tracks of deep, beautiful and intense music.
“Our intention going into this recording was to take control of every aspect of the process. We’ve known what we wanted it to sound like, and asked Neal and Brendyn to assist us to realize the vision. Recording at Heritage Studios with Brendyn (Rusti) was a sublime experience. Rusti is a great ear to have in the studio when you put down your tracks. His role was much more than engineering the recording process – he’s been a vision in his own right, and very, very supportive. Neal’s role was to mix the album, and we achieved some really creative and exciting sonic executions with him.”
The first single from LOST IN THE FALL, Strike The Match, was released earlier this year and was play listed on radio stations nationwide. It reached the Top 10 on Highveld and KFM’s Hombrew charts, as well as entered the 5FM’s Top 40 and the music video reached nr. 1 on the MK Music Video Charts.
