2018 album also available in CD.
Larkin Poe - the Nashville based sister duo Megan and Rebecca Lovell have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Venom & Faith’, the followup to their critically-acclaimed album ‘Peach’ which was nominated for a Blues Music Award for Best Emerging Artist Album, ‘Venom & Faith’ was produced by both the band and their long-time engineer Roger Alan Nichols.
“It’s a celebration of American roots music as translated by two sisters who are playing the blues in a modern age,” said Rebecca, one half of the duo, whose powerhouse vocals pair perfectly with sister Megan’s slinky lap steel to create an outlaw sound entirely unique to the two.
Still writing on their experience of the American South, the band keeps a strong outlaw mentality and defy expectations of roots rock in their fourth endeavor, this time using electronic elements, hip-hop production techniques and non-traditional percussion methods such as slammed doors and dresser drawers.
The album includes two covers—”Sometimes” by Bessie Jones and “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” by Skip James—though it’s otherwise all original material from the Lovell sisters.
