DeSoto Rust Expands American Roots Music
With the release of their third album, Highway Gothic, Philadelphia-based DeSoto Rust takes their interpretation of American roots music to a new level. Produced by Joe Carroll (Tom Gillam, Ben Arnold, Joseph Parsons), the album takes its title from the typeface used by the Federal Highway Administration on highway signage since the 1940’s. The studio renderings of the eleven new original songs preserve the energy and spontaneity of the band’s live performances. They made several well-received appearances during the 2010 South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas (part of their Southern Bound 2010 Tour), including a shared billing with guitar legend Bill Kirchen. The band is returning to Austin in 2013.
