Them Coulee Boys from Eau Claire, Wisconsin proudly share Die Happy via LoHi Records. Die Happy, the third from Them Coulee Boys (and first on LoHi Records) is nothing short of magic. Recorded at Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, Minnesota (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Son Volt) and alongside producer Dave Simonett of Trampled by Turtles. From the very first line, this record is an invitation out of the claustrophobia of one’s own mind, and into something more open, free, and communal.
“Step inside my head for a minute/Tell me if you ever find the space”
Die Happy represents the best of rock and folk music because the best music calls us to celebrate with another, to touch one another, to sing with one another. Lyrically, this album is as close as a barroom bear hug, that moment when a beloved friend sneaks up on you from behind and lifts your boots off the peanut-shell strewn floor. Love-struck, hopeful, introspective, but also bombastic, this album sounds like your brother’s voice, your sister’s voice, ringing out unexpectedly, and when you needed it the most. Imagine your darkest night, all alone, and then – the telephone rings, and the voice on the other end of the line makes everything better, makes everything okay again. Imagine being lost down a bent and dangerous alley, and that voice, far-off, calling you back towards the light. Die Happy represents it all.
Them Coulee Boys are Soren Staff (vocals, acoustic guitar and piano), Beau Janke (Banjos Guitar, Harmonica, Keys and vocals), Jen Staff (mandolin, organ, and vocals) and Neil Krause (Bass and Vocals).
The band plans to tour extensively in support of Die Happy.
