The Walkabouts are fresh off a successful European tour that saw them playing to sold out crowds in several countries. Fin Records has hooked up with The Walkabouts to release a series of 7”s from the bands Travels in the Dustland. The “My Diviner” 7” is the first and is a pressing of 1,000 on clear vinyl with only the faintest tint of a greenish blue coloring. Song lyrics adorn the custom inner sleeve and the outer sleeve has a barren desert image that matches the music perfectly. “My Diviner” is an atmospheric ballad with swells of sound playing backdrop to strong lyrical content. The Walkabouts provide a hushed effortlessness to their dusty Americana. B side “Neu Death Valley” is a subtle wash of texture with an organic banjo plucking away alongside the flowing tones. The Walkabouts are a band that knows how to create a mood perfect for a desolate journey and they have provided a fine start to their series of 7”s for Fin Records.
