Durand Jones and the Indications 'Durand Jones and the Indications Live Vol. 1' LP
In 2012 Durand Jones left his small-town in Louisiana, alto saxophone in tow, for the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. “Being a singer was never part of the plan,” Jones admits. But soon enough he found his way in front of a rowdy rock & roll band belting out a rambunctious rendition of ‘Dock Of The Bay’, to a basement full of drunken undergrads. That rowdy band unfolded into The Indications which includes founding members Aaron Frazer (drums, lead vocals) and Blake Rhein (guitar).

Inspired by a handful of dusty and obscure 45s bearing names like The Ethics, Brothers of Soul and The Icemen, The Indications set out to make a record steeped in heavy drums, blown-out vocals and deep grooves. Gathered around a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder and a case of Miller High-Life, the group spent their Sunday evenings recording into the early hours of the morning. The result is their modern soul masterpiece ‘Durand Jones & The Indications’ (Dead Oceans).

With comparisons from Charles Bradley and Lee Fields to Al Green, this young band are now at the forefront of 60s soul revival. Their sweaty, fiery live shows have earned them a reputation for giving it their all each night which can be witnessed on ‘Durand Jones & The Indications Live Vol. 1’.

Available for the first time on (translucent blue) vinyl, the album includes tracks from their debut and the deep cut soul covers fans have become accustomed to.
