Dan Wilson, lead singer with garage/blues rock n roll band The Cubical, returns with his second solo album, following the success of All Love is Blind, this time he’s backed by a rag time army of incredibly varied musicians, known as The Counterfactuals.
‘Victims’ is a varied and well balanced original album that comprises doo-wap Americana infused country with stark desert blues, via the darkly hypnotic, and mournfully beautiful ballad-esque lyricism that has become part and parcel of Wilson’s inimitable style. Drawing on the incredible production talent of Rory Ballantyne, the album was recorded in the main at The Vault, Liverpool and Ark Recording Studios, with expert backing vocals/ overdubs recorded by multi-instrumentalist Andy Frizell at Kitchen Studios. Wilson manages to conjure and indeed inhabit a world of musical and lyrical imagery that is reminiscent of Cohen and Dylan, captivating and surprising the listener, venturing even as far as Galloway Studios, Nijmegen, The Netherlands to fully render this highly unique collection of expertly crafted and passionately performed songs. Opening demonic blues track Leave My Baby Alone and the dark lyrical ballad Trained Myself were recorded and produced by multi instrumentalist Mat Leppanen of The Animal Farm, London, bringing a pulsating and dynamic palette to proceedings that are augmented superbly by the expert guitar work of Ville Leppanen. So It Goes is a Nick Lowe, Johnny Cash, Elvis hybrid fuelled by the rythythmical percussive prowess of fellow Cubical bandmate Mark Percy and the double bass and backing vocals of Andy Frizell, the twinkling electric guitars of Simon Montague and Rense Slings weave in and out of Wilson’s effortless live vocal. As I Went Out is a Morricone-esque lyrical tale of despair/futility pitched against the stark musical backdrop of the autoharp/mandolin of Simon James and the moody Ry Cooder inspired sparse yet frenetic guitar of Rense Slings, it is here that Siofra Ward’s cello comes to the fore to lure the listener in and heighten the emotional tension at the heart of the song. Leave Me is a ramshackle calypso sea shanty that features a drunken amalgamation of clarinet, trombone, slide guitar and ukulele, staggering their way home under Wilson’s assured and hypnotic vocal. Such spell binding is conjured up once more in the upbeat bluegrass/country, Brother Where Art Thou inspired stomper Poultry Man, featuring a wonderful bedrock of three part harmonies exalting ‘Sweet Ol Shaggy Dan” from the grubby world of earthly pleasure to the sanctum of the “saved” and hurried along by Slings’ fizzing telecaster, Frizell’s double bass and the machine gun snare of Percy. The delicate, heartfelt lyricism that has become Wilson’s signature is evident in Cohen tinged Only the City, a carefully stitched fabric of cello, double bass, clarinets and euphonium, augment Wilson’s heartfelt vocal and the angelic tones of Laura Campbell on backing vocals raise this lost prayer from a “city of goodbyes.” 20 Greatest Hits is a whisky fuelled stomping punk/bluegrass ode to debauchery and country singers gone by, whilst the album is brought to a superb close with the poetically haunting desert blues of Lay Thee Down, a swirl of cello, ghostly backing vocals and shimmering reverb drenched electric guitar, the canvas in which Wilson’s darkly beguiling tale takes place.

Press
“A fine piece of succinct, powerful songwriting from Dan Wilson & his Counterfactuals: channelling the dusty snarl of Nick Cave painting dark, religious imagery over a rhythm that moves steadily like a freighter across the American landscape.”
Getintothis – “Leave My Baby Alone” single of the week.

Dan Wilson’s voice, gravelly in its delivery, menacing with authority, provides perfectly.
Leave My Baby Alone, the call of anguish, fear perhaps, the desperate decline of our soul as it withers under the pressure of the threat of loss, we cannot help but revert back to animal nature in us, it is from that position of the final warned growl that we see just how far we can fall back into the animalistic habit.
A single of great conversion, one that matches the silence in the air that threatens to tear down governments, that brings revolutions, Dan Wilson is the great persuader of understanding any darkness in human emotion. (Liverpool Sound and Vision)

This is music that creaked of old wooden bars and dark corners. Music aged in barrels and smelling of a days work well done. Blues soaked Folk and Rock with Jazz undertones to whet the appetite.

What you have with Dan is a music and sound that is old and creaking with the lives that are lived in his songs. Somehow Dan captures the truth in Blues, an empathy for the struggles in life; from there his folk is of the dark woods and shadows. (Scene and Heard).

“All Love is Blind is THE BUSINESS” The Anfield Wrap –The Rider
“All Love is Blind possesses a hollow nest of heavenly vibrations, beautifully pieced together by Wilson’s deep, foreboding vocalism which is reminiscent of old sea shanty’s of an era gone by.” The Music Manual
