Over the Rhine
Advance $30.00 / Doors $35.00 *
Over the Rhine’s 15th studio album Love & Revelation arrives in time for 2019, the duo’s 30th continuous year of writing, recording and touring together. In that time, singers / songwriters / multi-instrumentalists, Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler (who’ve been married for 22 years) have built a vivid, emotionally-charged body of work that has won them a deeply devoted following and critical acclaim.
Like its predecessors, Love & Revelation showcases the pair’s timeless songcraft and understated yet soulful delivery. Those qualities are prominent on such memorable new songs as “Los Lunas,” “Let You Down,” “Broken Angels” and “Making Pictures,” whose insistent melodies and striking lyrical imagery haunt the listener long after the music fades.
When you listen to Over the Rhine, the supremely talented musical couple comprised of Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, you quickly fall under the spell of Karin’s timeless voice “which has the power to stop the world in its tracks” (Performing Songwriter). But then the songs start hitting you. Paste magazine writes, “Over the Rhine creates true confessional masterpieces that know neither border nor boundary” and included Bergquist and Detweiler in their list of 100 Best Living Songwriters. Rolling Stone recently wrote, Over the Rhine is a band “with no sign of fatigue, whose moment has finally arrived.” That’s quite a sentiment for a band celebrating 30 years of writing, recording, and life on the road. But as Karin Bergquist states, “There is still so much music left to be made.” Love & Revelation, the brand new album from Over the Rhine, is a record for right now. The songs have been rigorously road tested and burst at the seams with loss, lament, and resilient hope. The LA Times writes, “The Ohio based husband and wife duo has long been making soul-nourishing music, and the richness only deepens.”
