The title of The Vegabonds’ latest album, What We’re Made Of, is as symbolic as it is literal. At once, a statement about the band in-and-of-itself while also managing to capture the journey of the enthusiast as they get to know the band.
Their latest album opens up with acoustic stylings that suggest an impending narrative on the first track “Oh My Lord”. The subsequent electric instrumentation and vocal/lyrical contributions read like a soulful premonition towards new territory that culminates with a deeper understanding of one’s self. The inspirational connections to the American South are undeniable, and serve as an appropriate palate to paint the portrait of What We’re Made Of.
