Episode 135 of The JamBase Podcast, a companion of the Osiris Media Community, options an job interview with Dawes frontman Taylor Goldsmith. JamBase’s Andy Kahn spoke to the guitarist about the band’s new album, Misadventures Of Doomscroller, and substantially a lot more.

Back again in Oct 2020, Kahn interviewed producer Jonathan Wilson for The JamBase Podcast, who at the time disclosed he was about to start off working on a new Dawes album that he described as far more “jammy.” The ensuing Misadventures Of Doomscroller is a 7-keep track of (six-track) album with a 45-moment managing time. Two of the tracks are about 9 minutes long and yet another is more than eight minutes extended.

The band’s eighth album is very a sonic departure for the team, who took a self-professed “maximalist” method to the new history. Goldsmith talked about working with Wilson to realize that objective and described how essential the producer has been to the band. Dawes recorded Misadventures Of Doomscroller at Wilson’s Laural Canyon recording studio. Goldsmith specific Wilson’s function in the band’s early development – Wilson also produced their very first two albums and 2018’s Passwords – and how he is forever grateful for the assistance Wilson has specified the band over the a long time.

At one stage, the job interview turned to a discussion pertaining to new music labels, and in distinct the jam band label and the rather negative stigma affiliated with it. Goldsmith presented his just take from a musician’s perspective about the subject matter of jam bands, and of songs genres in common.

Goldsmith also talked about some of the other jobs he’s been involved in recently, like getting recruited to conduct with Grateful Useless bassist Phil Lesh as a member of Phil & Friends.

Goldsmith was requested about the function he has completed recently with his wife, actress and musician Mandy Moore. The couple a short while ago wrapped an emotional tour in aid of Moore’s new album, In True Life. Goldsmith explained the knowledge of having to check out his wife perform and relish in the response she obtained from her fans at her demonstrates. They were actually supposed to be on tour when Goldsmith was interviewed, but Moore decided to scale back her timetable considering that she is pregnant with their 2nd little one.

The interview also touched on Goldsmith’s collaboration very last calendar year with Goose (the interview transpired right before they done together again at Newport People Festival), as very well as Dawes’ future tour with Bahamas and significantly more.
