Willy Vlautin is a published novelist, one of his books being turned into a film for 2012 release, and he's brought the specifics of unfolding narrative to now ten Richmond Fontaine albums. The latest, The High Country, is out on September 5th, is a fully realised "song-novel" featuring genre hops and spoken word links, "a gothic love story between a mechanic and an auto parts store counter girl, whose secret love inspires an effort to escape the darkness of the world that surrounds them — drugs, violence, madness, loneliness, and desperation set against a backdrop of endless logging roads and the remains of a forest brutalized by logging." Right then. The advance single is merely a backwoods garage rock tale involving night terror, too many drugs and being in peril somewhere you're not sure of the exact location of.
