Album premiere: Great Peacock “Gran Pavo Real”

‘Gran Pavo Real’ is the forthcoming LP from Nashville-based Americana outfit Great Peacock, The follow up to their 2015 debut ‘Making Ghosts’, it was recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium by industry stalwart Dexter Green (Jason Isbell, Elizabeth Cooke, Derek Hoke) and RS Country rated them as one of the bands you need to know last month. God they are bossy at RS. Lead singer Andrew Nelson told AUK: “The music for ‘Gran Pavo Real’, Great Peacock in Spanish, came together really fast. When it was time to record we didn’t have a full-time bass player, so we invited Tom Blankenship from My Morning Jacket to come in and record one song with us. He liked it so much, he stayed on and played on all the other songs too. After that, everything just kept falling into place and we landed a record deal with Rope-A-Dope. The feedback we have gotten so far has been amazing and such a thrill.”
