Today, the Dallas, Texas-based multi-instrumentalist and singerBurt Hussell has released his debut album High Desert. Sonically, the LP features a grab bag of loop-based funk and psychedelic synth rock, tinged with comedic elements. Earlier this week, album standout “Tres Leches” was shared, and previously, Hussell shared “Wicked Wagu,” “Silver Surfer,” the album’s title-track and “Home.” The album was produced by Tim Lefrebvre (David Bowie, The Black Crowes, Tedeschi Trucks Band), who also plays on the album.
Burt Hussell is a multi-instrumentalist based out of Dallas, Texas, and is getting ready to release his first full length studio album, High Desert. Recorded in the secluded studio complexSonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas and produced by legendary bassist Tim Lefebvre, the album is a full on exploration into what a bass guitar can really do. The album is essentially a by-product of an epic “grill ‘n chill” that Burt and Tim always planned on throwing.
“We had a lot of fucking badass gear to set up, In a super badass studio with one of the most badass bassist in the world. I was kinda like how the fuck did I get here?!” The team almost instantly got to work. “We had like a 30 minute head scratching session on how we were gonna do this but once we got the formula down the music wouldn’t stop. From the first notes we all kinda knew what to do, it was like an epic battle but with basses instead of swords.”
