Frontier Ruckus Release New Album

Frontier Ruckus released Deadmalls & Nightfalls on Ramseur Records yesterday, July 20th, 2010 and you can catch them on the road supporting the effort.

The former college friends use traditional instrumentals banjo, pedal steel, harmonium, bellows, mandolin and guitars as well as the occasional tasteful horn flourishes and Hammond organ, to adorn their stark travelogues in a unique and heartfelt way.

Don't be fooled by their moniker; this band's frontier is urban and its landscapes are the industrial wastelands of their native Detroit. But the world portrayed in Deadmalls and Nightfalls is a land purely of frontman/multi-instrumentalist Matthew Milia's creation: a new, sacred landscape populated with the memories of the strip mall stretches and Michigan roadways of his youth. His sense of detail and place is beautiful and visually descriptive, like a Midwestern Cormac McCarthy. Milia's vocals are unadorned and honest, the songs haunting and spare.
