Vinyl LP pressing. A rock band without a drummer, a bluegrass band without a fiddler. To The Dead South, a self-styled 4-piece string band from Regina, Saskatchewan, it's about how, not what, you play. Their combination of cello, mandolin, guitar and banjo has all the hallmarks of a group tuned to bygone times, but with their signature sleight of hand, The Dead South find distinctly -modern bathos in this old time rigging. Sugar & Joy, The Dead South's tightest, weirdest and most exciting studio work yet, is their first album written and recorded outside Regina. The album was produced by FAME Studio-trained Jimmy Nutt, a longtime member of the Muscle Shoals music scene whose recent credits include a Grammy for his work with The Steeldrivers.
