Background Magazine Review

Downriver Dead Men Go are a Dutch band. It is the side project of band members of the band Caitlin (Gerrit Koekebakker, Fernandez Burton and Andy de Zeeuw), and additional musician Gijs van Rijn. Tides is the band’s debut album. I love the cover of the album, a beautiful and serene painting. This album was pretty tough to review. This is not the regular music I listen to but I can appreciate it. To me, it’s alternative slow rock/post rock music with long stretching musical themes. I do love the atmosphere that surrounds the album. It’s dark, it’s somewhat depressing as well, but very beautiful. Don’t expect up tempo and cheery music elements while listening to this album.
