Weekend Recall: The Revivalists
The Revivalists' name says it all. They're a big, raucous American band making big-hearted music with an ear for instant-classic hooks. Based in New Orleans, they combine seven talented musicians playing instruments as diverse as saxophone and pedal steel guitar into a thick, soulful musical gumbo. On their recently released third studio album Men Amongst Mountains, which features the hit single, "Wish I Knew You," the bands talents are out in full force, and the result is irresistible toe-tapping pop.
We had the band take us for a weekend in their world as they played the Austin City Limits Music Festival:
Seven dudes on a three dude couch talking to morning show hosts.
Sometimes we get to ride in golf carts. I still think it’s fun.
Picture in Picture.
It's Friday the 13th. Let’s get scary.
The sun sets.
We play till the sun goes down.
