PRESENTED BY OLIVIA DIX
2012 was a big year for The Sideshow Tragedy: in addition to continuing their tireless, never-ending tour of The United States, the band also completed their first European tour and released a new record, Persona. Recorded and produced by Austin TX funk outfit T Bird and the Breaks, the LP is the Austin, TX duo’s rawest, bluesiest, dirtiest offering to date.
Like last year’s vinyl-only quickie EP Gasoline, Persona was recorded at Austin’s Big Orange Studio, but this time the band (Nathan Singleton on vocals and guitar, Jeremy Harrell on drums) decided to add a few extra ears. With Tim Crane, Sammy P and C Furr producing, the band fleshed out the songs in some exciting ways, adding unusual percussion and interesting guitar textures, but never sacrificing their trademark rawness and immediacy. Almost all of the songs, including overdubs, are first take, single takes. Much care was taken to avoid recording anything sounding remotely “clean” and you can hear the layers of dirt in the grooves. A collection of raw energy and focused poetry, Persona’s songs are hitched together like old rail cars hurtling non-stop from the Deep South to the East Village.
