Goodnight, Texas, Jarrod Dickenson, Elliah Heifetz

  • Goodnight, Texas

    Goodnight, Texas

    Bluegrass

    Conventional wisdom says the two frontmen of a band shouldn’t live
    on opposite sides of the United States, but that's never seemed to
    deter Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf.
    Goodnight, Texas is a tough-to-define storytelling folk rock band
    whose strength lies in unexpected sweet spots. Drawing their name
    from Pat and Avi’s onetime geographic midpoint (the real town of
    Goodnight in the State of Texas, a tiny hamlet east of Amarillo directly
    betwixt San Francisco, CA and Chapel Hill, NC), the five-piece band
    also exists at the center of its songwriters’ contrasting styles — via a
    1913 Gibson A mandolin and a 2015 Danelectro Baritone Guitar, at
    the crossroads of folk and blues and rock ‘n’ roll, in a place where dry
    wit and dark truths meet hope and utmost sincerity.
    The very top of 2022 brings the band’s highly anticipated fourth album
    ‘How Long Will It Take Them To Die’, a dark yet lighthearted shoebox
    of knick-knacks and newspaper clippings - perhaps reflecting on either
    the last two years of isolation, or the whole of American history. In true
    Goodnight, Texas fashion, complex but relatable characters and
    locations are still featured alongside stories of self-discovery, rowdy
    behavior and heartbreaking loss, but with a more honed sound.
    Thanks in part to the creative and performative talents of the lineup
    Scott Padden (drums, upright bass), Adam Nash (lead guitar, pedal
    steel, violin) and Chris Sugiura (bass), we hear Goodnight, Texas in a
    more detailed and developed way. Where past Goodnight, Texas
    albums have traveled cross-country and throughout the 19th and early
    20th centuries, this new offering falls on a z-axis somewhere between
    the aurora borealis and six feet underground.
    Of the album’s first single ‘Hypothermic’, singer and co-songwriter Avi
    Vinocur says:
    ”Stories from different corners of the American past can often be
    dark
    and heavy.
    Our band's music has always followed along,
    telling tales
    of fiction and non-fiction with sonic landscapes to match. Many of our
    past songs and albums had taken place in the American South,
    Northeast, Midwest, and Southwest - but I had written a story in my
    notebook of a character braving the frigid tundra of Canada by car,
    north toward the distant U.S. state of Alaska -
    through hallucinations,
    paranoia, and exhaustion -
    to escape something unknown. It matched
    the sinister sound of this strange heel-thumper I had been working
    with on guitar - and together they were a perfect pair. "Hypothermic" is
    the result - our attempt to tell stories of America's furthest corner,
    under a darker headlight, and attempting to sonically capture the
    heaviness of not only America's past, but its present.”
    In March 2020, as the world confronted a new indoor reality, two long
    minutes of the GN,TX mainstay “The Railroad” found themselves in
    the intro sequence of the first episode of Netflix’s “Tiger King,” which
    shattered streaming records with 34 million views in 10 days.
    Also in March of 2020, the band released its first live album:
    “Live in
    Seattle, Just Before The Global Pandemic.”
    Jonathan Kirchner
    recorded, mixed and mastered a weekend of October performances at
    Tractor Tavern that featured a newly expanded five-man lineup. GN,
    TX rookie Chris Sugiura brings precision and flair to the bass (and
    strong hair); grizzled veteran and former GN, TX bassist Adam Nash
    slides over to lead guitar and pedal steel where he can truly dazzle;
    extra grizzled veteran and former GN, TX bassist Scott Griffin Padden
    holds steady behind the kit, beating the hell out of the available
    objects with aplomb. In a strange and often dark time, here is a totem
    of life, and a great example of the raucousness and dynamics of the
    band’s live performance.
    In 2021, Goodnight, Texas were invited by Metallica to contribute to
    The Metallica Blacklist, a collection of reinterpretations of their
    legendary 1991 album Metallica (the Black Album). Goodnight, Texas
    was the only band to cover ‘Of Wolf and Man’ gaining praise from
    press and even Metallica themselves - they used the song over the
    PA following their live performances in late 2021.
