Kyle Craft - Dolls Of Highland album flac
Album · 2016 · 12 Songs. Dolls of Highland Kyle Craft.
The Portland-based musician manages to capture the energy of a barroom band performance on Dolls of Highland, despite the fact that the vast majority of the album was performed and recorded by Craft alone during a return trip to his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana. He's dedicated the album to the city and its trail of heartbreak, which provided the inspiration for Dolls of Highland (Highland being a neighborhood of Shreveport).
Kyle Craft (born January 9, 1989), is an American singer-songwriter and musician based in Portland, Oregon. He released his debut album, Dolls of Highland from Sub Pop records in 2016. Craft was born in Shreveport, Louisiana. First drawn to music through the Baptist church choir in his early childhood, Craft was introduced to rock music through a David Bowie compilation that he found in Kmart. At the age of 15, he started playing the acoustic guitar his grandmother gave him for Christmas
Kyle Craft grew up in a tiny Louisiana town on the banks of the Mississippi, where he spent most of his time catching alligators and rattlesnakes instead of playing football or picking up the guitar. He’s not the born product of a musical family, and bands never came through town–it was only a chance trip to K-Mart that gave him his first album, a David Bowie hits compilation that helped inspire him eventually to channel his innate feral energy into songwriting and rock and roll.

Kyle Craft is about to release his debut album (Dolls of Highland via Sub Pop on April 29th), and he’s already trailed by more mythology than some artists accrue in an entire career. Dolls of Highland spills over with tales of spoiled love and bourbon nights, all sung in Craft’s distinctive wail (listen to ‘Lady of the Ark’).
Dolls of Highland Lyrics: We used to dance, We used to do it all night, You and me and the dolls of highland, They'd crank that radio loud, The jester choked on his jokes in the spotlight, But the poet. We used to dance We used to do it all night You and me and the dolls of highland They'd crank that radio loud. The jester choked on his jokes in the spotlight But the poet burned all her last year's pages And we watched the bottom fall out. But oh I've never set a sight On a siren so bright On a songbird so deranged And she said you must be new To the Shreveport city blues She said these days Her nights were getting strange.
