Meditative and haunting psychedelic folk-blues that evokes a vast and transcendental desert experience.


Headdress is a new mysterious duo of native Texans who have spent the last two years wandering throughout the American West. Their first EP entitled "Silence is the Golden Mountain" was written and recorded in the woods along the south fork of the Yuba River in the Nation of Northern California where they lived in tents during the Summer of 02006. They only released 100 hand numbered and handsewn copies throughout the Bay Area. After buying a van called Cloud, they headed south and spent time in Big Sur as well as Joshua Tree before finding their way into the Great American Southwest. This was the birthplace and muse of their first full-length under the new moniker of Headdress and entitled "Turquoise". The record was recorded 02007 in a hollow hill in the grasslands of the Sonoran Desert under the Moon of Shedding Ponies (May). After the release of "Turquoise" they sold their van and bought a Recreation Vehicle called The Golden Horse aka Goldie and headed home to the hills of Texas. Since then, they are making a name for themselves in Austin and becoming favorites of The Austin Chronicle, have recorded new material for California's Attacknine Records, completed a Westcoast tour in September and are set for their first full-scale national tour in January with Jack Welsh and the Five Civilized Tribes of Bear Creek.
