Performing as The Division Men, the Austin, Texas-based husband and wife duo of Jesus and Caroline Portillo create delicate mood pieces sooted by the dust of the American West.
Following on their 2014 LP, Under the Gun, The Division Men will release Tranquilo Trail on 9 October, a six-song DVD of live songs recorded in their home studio. Offering up a take of “Marionette,” a song from 2011’s Live @ Clap of Thunder featured on Tranquilo Trail, The Division Men reimagine the folkish song handled by Caroline into a brooding spectral dance that would not be out of place on the Day of the Dead.
Set to tour Europe in November and December following the release of Tranquilo Trail (dates here), you can watch the video for “Marionette” below and pre-order Tranquilo Trail here. All funds raised through sales of the DVD will be put toward the recording of The Division Men’s third album which is currently underway.
