Mammoth Mane Stage says
Nine years on from 2006's 'Factory Girls', that Dallas Crane have grown into a smarter, better band is no surprise. That they've given themselves a masterful Don Walker-ish overhaul certainly is. Their just released new album 'Scoundrels' is maturely amazing, and they are taking it on the road, if you need a further proof. Catch them up at Woolly on Saturday, February 13.

'Scoundrels' is intelligent, bluesy, and unpredictable; the work of rock & roll lifers wrestling with a world larger than wasting away in an Abbotsford bar.

Dave Larkin isn't just the tip-toed screamer of yore, giving "Come to Light" and "I'm Sorry Darling" the requisite amount of soul to properly accompany a drunken late night bar-stool apology. The Pete Satchell-led lilt of "Lucky Me", meanwhile, when paired with Larkin's muscly "Disillusioned" makes for an inspired moment, spiralling off into reality and regrets.

INTERESTING FACT: Dallas Crane raised money for ‘Scoundrels’ via crowd founding platform Pledgemusic. The band then announced that 3% of all proceeds from their first album in 9 years after they hit their goal will be channelled to the cancer charity.
