Dust City Opera

The Mothership, 20 ABC Mesa Rd, Taos, NM

Albuquerque-based folk-rock group Dust City Opera will be hitting the road to Taos to perform at Taos Mesa Brewing Mothership in support of the release of their debut album, Heaven.

Dust City Opera drew international attention with the release of Heaven earlier this year and have announced another album currently in the works.

The Weekly Alibi described Dust City Opera’s style as, “outrageously interesting” and Albuquerque the Magazine noted, “the band’s arresting debut album [has] an unusual and distinctive range of textures.”

Heaven is available on all major streaming platforms. Listen on Spotify now: https://open.spotify.com/artist/3EyM5DX0Qhb8noV3cioUpd

Dust City Opera is the American Southwest’s fastest-rising indie folk-rock band led by singer/songwriter Paul Hunton. They’re known for their unique instrumentation and crafty songwriting, juxtaposing dark, bold subject matter over whimsical, light-hearted melodies. Hunton’s songwriting is strikingly visual and spans the spectrum from playful to apocalyptic, balancing his powerful voice over exceptional arrangements of dreamy guitar licks and intensely rich horns.

They have been compared to the likeness of Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, and Cake with an acoustic, folksy richness that is paired with a unique instrumentation of clarinets, trombone, accordion, the occasional vibraslap, (and YELLING!).
