The Ike Reilly Assassination

Since his major-label debut, the groundbreaking Salesmen and Racists, Ike Reilly has been making punk/folk/blues-influenced rock ’n’ roll records that lean heavily on stories of outsiders with keen details and broad strokes that insinuate a crack in the American dream. Reilly’s band, The Assassination, has been called one of the best live bands in America. The body of recorded work they’ve turned out has been poetic, rebellious, wholly original, and critically acclaimed.

Still, Reilly and co-producer Phil Karnats (Secret Machines, Tripping Daisy, Polyphonic Spree) felt that Reilly’s best takes had never been recorded. The clarity and rhythm of Reilly’s performances that Karnats had witnessed in hotel rooms, backstage, and on tour buses had never been captured. “I wanted to create a setting where lil’ Ike could sing and play guitar simultaneously, with the band in the same room… no headphones, and minimal isolation,” says Karnats. “There’s always been a freshness to playing the songs together that’s hard to harness when recording in the more common, modern sense where you make rhythm tracks first, then overdubs and vocals last. This time, Ike did his thing, and we developed the arrangements based on his vocal approach, cadence, phrasing, intensity, etc. Ultimately, we ended up with some killer songs with a strangely unique, slightly off-center vibe.” The resulting album, Crooked Love, is Reilly’s seventh studio album and comes out May 18, 2018, on Rock Ridge Music.
