Recently, Dawes debuted “All Your Favorite Bands (Alternate Version),” a new version of the fan-favorite song which initially appeared on their 2015 album of the same name, on Amazon Music. Said Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes about their Amazon Original: “Here’s an alternate version of one of our own personal favorites. Ever since I wrote this song, there hasn’t been a single Dawes show in which this song didn’t end the night. With this version, we get the full band involved a little earlier than you hear on the original. I’m playing the Wurlitzer piano and Dave Rawlings is playing guitar. Hope you enjoy.” Stream and purchase “All Your Favorite Bands (Alternate Version) via Amazon Music here.
Passwords is an album for and about the modern age: the relationships that fill it, the politics that divide it, and the small victories and big losses that give it shape. “We’re living in such a unique moment in history,” says lead singer and songwriter Taylor Goldsmith, “Many of these songs are an attempt to come to terms with the modern world, while always trying to consider both sides of the story.” NPR Music says that with the album, Dawes “returns to its greatest specialty: smooth and ingratiating California folk-rock that never bothers to hide its big, beating, bleeding heart” Passwords is available for purchase on all formats here.
