Rawlings Pitching Machine
Between 1996 and 2003 seemed Gillian Welch amazing record almost casually from her sleeve to shake, but after Revival (1996), Hell Among The Yearlings (1998), Time (The Revelator) (2001), Soul Journey (2003) was suddenly on. Gillian Welch seems since then to deal with a writer's block of an unprecedented scale and yet, nothing on her fifth album. This is not only annoying for the fans of Gillian Welch and her music, but also for her musical partner Dave Rawlings, who was clearly present in all plates of Gillian Welch. On the musical break forced by Rawlings is now an end with the release of A Friend Of A Friend of Dave Rawlings Machine. A Friend Of A Friend is not only the return of Dave Rawlings, but also that of Gillian Welch, who contributes vocals to most songs on this album and also has co-written several songs on this album. Where the plates of rawlings pitching machine Gillian Welch had to settle with a spot in the background, the roles are reversed this time.

At the first hearing and bluntly A Friend Of A Friend is a plate with a starring Gillian Welch Dave Rawlings, but when you debut of Dave Rawlings Machine often hear are the differences. The music of Dave Rawlings Machine, like that of Gillian Welch, occasionally deeply rooted in Appalachia, but also influences from Rawlings explores folk, country, rock and West Coast pop.
