Fans of Jesse Dayton, you can now purchase his latest album, Gulf Coast Sessions, pressed in Opaque Pink. “The Gulf Coast Sessions was inspired by that Interstate 10 area from Beaumont to New Orleans, where I was raised and where the old music was still going strong in the 70’s when I was a kid,” explained Jesse about the sentiment behind the recording. “East Texas African-American blues and gospel was everywhere, with lots of revival church music on the radio. I thought about all of these scenarios while we were making this raw little stripped-down record. It’s all Gulf Coast house party music with East Texas Blues, Red Hot Zydeco and New Orleans R&B.”
The Gulf Coast Sessions EP was recorded on the back porch of friend Clay Connell’s old house-turned-vintage-shop Roadhouse Rags in South Austin. Taking the spirit of Jesse’s childhood memories, the results are a raw, stripped down house party fun!
“It’s loaded with vibe and reminds me of the music the grownups played at the hurricane parties I went to as a kid.”
And with all purchases, Gimme is including a set of 4 Bar Coasters from Jesse's Mixtape Vol 1.
