Recorded for MinneCultu Honeydogs perform new material before heading into the studio to record its new CD, “What Comes After” (November release on Grain Belt Records).
Written in earnest and recorded in less than six days, “What Comes After” blends roots pop with orchestral and soul arrangements. From the brash title track to the psychedelic “The Devil You Do,” the Honeydogs are an inspired ensemble. With shades of Leonard Cohen, Harry Nilsson, Nick Drake and Tony Joe White, the new CDis a soul folk and country record tracked with minimal overdubs.
