Four years after its formation in the winter of 2018/19, after quite a few pandemic-related confusions and setbacks, the Hinterlandexbress 2023 has finally made it to the Roadhouse recording studio in Upper Austria. The listener can expect a varied and relaxed mixture of blues and rock with jazzy nuances on the eponymous debut album. All 17 tracks were recorded by the experienced on-board personnel directly and almost without overdubs. The sophisticated dialect lyrics are mainly penned by bandleader Dietmar "Dietz" Forisch (schee daneem/a daneem).
Contentwise it goes with the five-headed Kombo from the Inn Salzachdelta not only around the current impositions of the life. They also use material left over from the years and stories from their youth: the visit to the first big concert in the Kronebau, turn-off experiences while hitchhiking or hippie girls wrapped in Indian robes in the fog of incense sticks.
