Recorded mostly live in two weekend sessions on the Iron Range at Sparta Sound by Rich Mattson (Ol' Yeller, The Glenrustles, The Tisdales), House of Rust flows easily over it's 43 minutes and 13 songs. He's well-known as the musical mayor of St. Paul and one of the Twin Cities' most poetic Americana songwriters, but Martin Devaney covers a lot of geographic and musical ground on his sixth album, House of Rust.ï¿½ It opens with a song about an eatery in Austin, Texas, and visits the South Dakota prairie before winding up at St. Paul's Fountain Cave, with several stops at Heartbreak Hotel along the way. Recorded on the Iron Range at Rich Mattson's Sparta Studio, the music ranges from rollicking, Slim Dunlap-style rave-ups to moody and dark, Joe Henry-ian downers, with backers including fiddler Jake Hyer, Bellwether drummer Mick Wirtz and Big Wu kyboardist Al Oikari. -Minneapolis Star Tribune.
