Slowburner was recorded by Drew Vandenberg (The Whigs, Patterson Hood, Deerhunter, Futurebirds) at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA. The super hooky Slowburner (the title track) kicks off the record and leads the listener down a path that is fueled by the atmospheric punk rock of "Madison Row", the anthemic first single "Confusion of Trust", the dramatic "California Fire" and "The End". The album closes with the horn driven "Boomtown" and the youthful glaze of "Marmalade".
The District Attorneys are:
Drew Beskin - Vocals, Guitar, Keyboard.
Chris Wilson - Drums, Backing Vocals
Frank Keith IV - Bass, Backing Vocals
T.J. Mimbs - Vocals, Keyboard, Guitar
Walker Beard - Guitar, Backing Vocals, Keyboard
Press for The District Attorneys -
We made mention of how much we missed old My Morning Jacket. As if it were some sort of call to the heavens, the gods of southern rock must have heard my beckon cry, and responded kindly this morning with The District Attorneys.

Nothing makes me prouder to say I am from Atlanta than to watch a band I have know from infancy grow into a force.

A refreshing combination of dreamy guitar, roots-rock simplicity, college-rock jangle, and front-porch vibes.
