Rain On Dust is RF Shannon’s third album and their third album released in a three-year window from 2017 to 2019.
Rain On Dust expanded on their desert soul sound, which has also been described as deconstructed Americana, mellow psych, and shoegaze country. This was their first full album with Keeled Scales. With this album RF Shannon swam even deeper into the great underground rivers of American song and put to tape timeless, memorable songs that sink in on first listen.
Instant classic "Wild Rose Pass" has always been right there. "Angeline" and "Don't Be Shy" nod to 60s rock with deep choruses, shuffled drums, and gorgeous harmonies. "Ballad of a Thin Place" is a woozy ballad that would have been right at home on the "Rolling Thunder Revue." RF Shannon is a band that defies easy classification and bridges multiple genres. At the heart of these songs is strong songwriting and musicianship. Fans of Bill Withers, Woods, Jackson C. Frank, and The Band take note.
