Rotary Downs: New Album, New Member, Last Shows Til Fall


Rotary Downs
Rotary Downs has undergone several changes in its decade-long history, from the ramshackle recording project that created the band's first three releases to the polyrhythmic web of melodic guitars, keys, and trumpets that comprised Chained to the Chariot and, most recently, Cracked Maps & Blue Reports. This evolution of sound and experience has led the band to its current mission: to make its finest album yet. With this goal, the band traveled to Lafayette in February to begin recording with Grammy-winning producer/sound guru Ivan Klisanin. The band expects the new collection of songs to be ready for release in late 2012.

The most recent addition to the sound of Rotary Downs is multi-instrumentalist Alex Smith (World Leader Pretend, Mojave 3, Neil Halstead). Rotary Downs is now Chris Colombo, Michael Girardot, James Marler, Jason Rhein, Alex Smith, and Zack Smith.

Rotary Downs will play four shows, respectively, this spring during Lafayette's Festival International and The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
