The Restoration “You Know What to Do” – Listen

The Restoration released the album ‘West‘ a few weeks ago, and today’s Track ‘You Know What to Do‘ is the lead song on the album.  And from the first notes it is clear that The Restoration are not just another folk-influenced roots-rock band.  ‘West’ is a concept album that tries to untangle the dysfunctional family background of  The Restoration’s frontman Daniel Machado’s father. 

Machado explains: “My dad spent his youth in the 1940s and ’50s bouncing between the whims of divorced parents in places familiar and hostile across the United States. I grew up listening to his stories, in which he became my sole protagonist and personal folk hero“.  It makes for an enthralling listen, with a cinematic scope that calls on western themes and weaves them straight into the songs.  Certainly memorable.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
