Miss Derringer – Lullabies

The Los Angeles outlaws (and collective of some pretty amazing visual artists) Miss Derringer is releasing their second album, Lullabies, on Southern California’s great Sympathy for the Record Industry today…

Lullabies, the sophomore album from Miss Derringer finds our gang of L.A. outlaws on a musical jailbreak. This album stirs up the sounds of the dust bowl, with winds that carry across genres–from the earnest twang of a Merle Haggard country troubadour to the rebellious flirtation of the Ronnettes. The wily group has become increasingly difficult to catch, having narrowed their core down to Liz McGrath (singer), Morgan Slade (guitar, songwriter), and Sylvain de Muizon (bass). But their accomplices have grown to include Clem Burke (drums), Rick Ballard (lead guitar), and Derek O’Brien (drums/producer). Like every good outlaw story, the legend of Miss Derringer includes a marriage and a murder. This year longtime couple Liz McGrath and Morgan Slade became husband and wife, but their lovelorn heroine once again finds herself knee deep in misfortune. Lullabies documents her love on the run, her passionately cruel man, his murder, and the atonement she can only express in song.
