The very gifted DeSoto Caucus are Anders Pederson (vocals, guitars), Peter Dombernowsky (drums, clapping etc.), Nikolaj Heyman (vocals, guitars, bass) and Thoger T. Lund (upright bass, clarinet, piano). Besides their important creative and formative liaison with Howe Gelb, they’ve been jobbing openmindedly and adventurously with «anyone interesting around» which led to collaborations with notables like Isobel Campell & Mark Lanegan, Kurt Wagner and the famous «Shout» Scout Niblett. To load even more mystery on to the plate, the group also toured under the names of Nave Nielsen’s Deer Children or Plastic Horse. Word plays aside, their music’s unpretentious and deceptively simple, it’s been called «Cosmic American Music» – breathtaking, multi-layered, simply brilliant. Unbelievably cool guitar play conjures up and fades dreamlike in and out of surreal, vintage and red an ochre colored landscapes.Their third album «The DeSoto Caucus» lives up to its critical acclaim. It’s inspired by the sounds and images of a wild and blazing desertscape and it’ll baffle, then indulge and finally totally relax your mind. Possibly to the point of no return.
