The Wind and the Wave / Shawn James / Swells
The Wind and the Wave, a duo from Austin, Texas, composed of Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker, will release its third full-length and fifth album in its five-year existence this fall.
Human Beings Let You Down was a record made in hotels and backstage dressing rooms across the United States as the duo toured to support its last release on Island Records, Happiness Is Not a Place. Produced and mixed by Dwight A. Baker, Human Beings harkens back to the Wind and the Wave’s original record on RCA, From the Wreckage. It’s a sonic tapestry that brings a rock ’n’ roll edge while retaining the original folk vibes and incredible lyric and vocal work by Patty Lynn that rose the duo to prominence. The record also features the first appearance of the duo’s touring band. The new tour, Neon Prayer Flags, kicks off in October.
