Colin Davis On their first full-length album, Seattle's own Nathan Wade and the Dark Pioneers have whipped together a gritty collection of songs ranging from riff-heavy post-punk to bottleneck country rock to psychedelia, missing nary a step in their headlong lurch into the wasteland. Ennio Morricone and Nick Cave strapped on their gunbelts, and Johnny Cash himself may have slipped his Bible into their hands, but Wade and his Dark Pioneers blaze a trail all their own. Favorite track: This World (Already Over).

Nathan Wade & The Dark Pioneers Seattle

Nathan Wade & The Dark Pioneers are Seattle’s purveyors of apocalyptic Americana, hitching the rusted scraps of American roots music to a battered pick-up truck and dragging it across a broken 21st Century landscape. It’s a cinematic trip down a desolate highway as the dashboard rattles apart and the truck radio blasts songs of murder, drug abuse, and Biblical arcana. ... more
