Today, Brooklyn by-way-of New Zealand band Streets of Laredo, comprised of close-knit family members Daniel, Dave, and Sarahjane Gibson, along with Cameron Deyell, Sean McMahon, Andrew McGovern, released their sophomore album, Wild, produced by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.) and out via Dine Alone Records.
Wild features 11 tracks of jangly, trumpet-tinged, anthemic goodness, with Daniel and Sarahjane Gibson trading and sharing lead vocal duties. Lyrically, the album explores subject matter from epic wanderlust in the opening track, “Wild”, to social commentary—calling out “villains dressed in business stripes” on songs like “99.9%” and acknowledging that “the state of human beings in this land of the free don’t seem that free to me” in the buzzy “Remedies”, ending with the motivational contemplation of “Gold”. There’s something for everyone on Wild, give it a spin:
