Born in the whaling town of New London, Connecticut, and based out of the hirsute, indie folk hub that is Portland, Oregon, Quiet Life specializes in wide-open, twang-kissed, Pacific Northwest Americana in the vein of the Lumineers, Head and the Heart, Shovels & Rope, and Trampled by Turtles. Formed in 2006 by brothers Sean (vocals and guitars) and Ryan Spellman (drums and some singing), along with bassist Paul Dutton and guitarist Craig Rupert, the quartet issued its debut album, Act Natural, in 2007. Big Green arrived in 2011, followed by their third long-player, Wild Pack, in 2013.
Quiet Life made their latest album over the course of a few humid mid-summer weeks in Dr. Dog’s Mt Slippery studio in Philadelphia with zero air conditioning and with no time constraints. The sessions with producer Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog) and engineer Nathan Sabatino would blur the lines of day and night; resulting in a 24/7 operation across Mt. Slippery’s multiple live-rooms and mixing consoles. What emerged from the murk of this studio schedule is FOGGY, a record that has as many sonic traits as the band has miles on their tour van.
Quiet Life enlisted an old friend, Greg Giorgio (The National, Trey Anastasio), to give the record a final mix and clarity that belies its name. Spanning lo-fi folk, Americana and psychedelic pop, Quiet Life has made a record that is as ageless as the sound of the predecessors to whom they credit inspiration. Rolling Stone has called the band “charming”, CMT has described their sound as having “oceanside swagger” and Esquire touts them as “comfortably authentic”. FOGGY is an easy-going collection of songs that defines the band as a purveyor of classic rock and roll sounds, and as a successor to rock and roll staples, who have managed to create a sound unmistakably their own.
