Leaving the Commonwealth is warmer in its appropriation of outlaw country, although it's a similarly academic endeavor. So many years later, however, it's just as impossible to recapture that sound and especially that sensibility as it is to evoke the smoky atmosphere of the tekedes, which makes Leaving the Commonwealth sound a bit too self-aware, even kitschy at times.
The combination will serve to further cement D. Charles Speer’s reputation as one of the most innovative players out there. released March 15, 2011. Dave Charles Shuford grew up in Georgia, absorbing the culture and history of the American South before moving to New York in the early 90s where he joined forces with The Helix (Hans Chew, Marc Orleans, Ted Robinson, and Steve McGuirl.

Ostensibly, on their forthcoming third album, Speer and The Helix resemble a terrific, intermittently cosmic, bar band. There’s an obvious antecedent for this stuff, and much of Leaving The Commonwealth has the spirit of The Grateful Dead circa Europe ’72, especially the roistering, spiralling Freddie’s Lapels. But everything here, from zydeco dalliances to the levitational riffing of the title track, is hugely enjoyable in its own right.
