With DJ Jon Nelson

The UK’s finest purveyors of beautifully crafted country rock, The Redlands Palomino Company, return after a four year hiatus with the eagerly awaited and utterly brilliant new album, Don’t Fade (released on Clubhouse Records on June 13th). With the husband-and-wife
partnership of Hannah and Alex Elton-Wall once again to the fore on nine new tracks alongside a sublime cover of The Dillards classic ‘One A.M.,’ Don’t Fade will delight the bands countrywide fanbase and undoubtedly entice new listeners alike to the sounds of one of the UK’s most treasured groups.
After recording their first two albums in London with well respected producers Brian O’Shaunghessy (Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine), Sean Read (Beth Orton, Pete Greenwood) and Chris Clarke (Jim Jones Revue, Madam), for Don’t Fade the band decided on a different approach. Opting to buy a stash of recording equipment and decamp to the countryside, the album was produced in-house by Alex Elton-Wall and recorded over an extended period in rural Wiltshire and the Wye Valley. As Alex explains, “This change in environment resulted in a totally relaxed and laid back band, with the time and space to play purely for the love of the music – which shines through on the organic sound of this recording.” Essentially an ‘as live’ recording the band have been able to create a definable link to their amazing live performances as well as giving these classic songs room to breath and come to life. What makes ‘The Redlands’ such a loved and cherished live band is what will ultimately define Don’t Fade as one of the great records of 2011.
