About Album

Legends Of The Desert: Volume 2 brings us further into the ‘desert’ by showcasing new and classic Desert Rock bands geographically located in the Southwestern United States.

Continuing the vision of Vol.1, the second installment will introduce the world to two new “Legends” bands, carefully curated by Desert Record’s owner Brad Frye.

Side A:
The Penitent Man is a 5-piece from Salt Lake City blending Desert Rock, Classic Rock, Heavy Blues. These exclusive songs featuring the special guest, Todd Ogren from Rival Sons on keyboard for all three tracks! Sounds like Led Zeppelin teamed up with Alice in Chains to make an album in the desert.

Side B:
Cortége is a duo from Austin, TX who play Ambient Doom mixed with post-western cinematic scores. Heavy bass guitar, drums, and tubular bells. Sounds like if Earth and Pink Floyd teamed up to do a soundtrack to a David Lynch film.
