Rodney Parker and 50 Peso Reward Release Live in the Living Room
Rodney Parker & 50 Peso Reward proudly release the follow-up to last year's The Apology Part 1 EP with a new live album appropriately entitled Live in the Living Room. On it, the Denton, TX-based sextet touch on material from not only that EP, but also their two previous full-length studio efforts, 2005's Blow The Soot Out and their highly-lauded 2008 release The Lonesome Dirge, as well as premiering two new songs, "Where the Bright Lights Glow Me" and "Skin and Bones." The album was recorded live at the band's house with no amplification in front of an audience of about 30 friends, family and industry people. It was then later mixed on the premises, and has no post-production alterations, overdubs or studio-trickery affecting any of the performances... it's the show exactly as it was played and heard that night. While this intimate acoustic performance is decidedly different from their explosive 'plugged-in' live shows that they're renowned for, the Pesos' musical chemistry and dynamics are still undeniably intact on this recording, not to mention that these earthier takes only solidify how remarkable these songs and Parker's commanding voice are.
