FROM THE LAND OF MIRACLES is the second full length album release from Police Dog Hogan who have a great knack of fusing a lot of Americana sounds without coming across as pseudo Americans. In fact they can join a growing batch of UK bands who are putting a very British stamp on the Americana genre, if that doesn’t sound too contradictory. Over the course of the eleven recorded tracks, they expertly manage to combine excellent musical arrangements with insightful lyrics as well as covering a diverse number of styles to unveil their versatility.As you would expect from a band setting their stall out to give an interpretation of roots music, the sounds of mandolin, fiddle, banjo and dobra are interwoven with the usual guitar,and percussion input from drums and bass. The album has benefitted from the guidance of experienced producer Eliot James and the finished product is an accomplished record that the band can proudly take forward and promote around the country. Hopefully this will include a busy 2013 festival season and, perhaps, a return visit to Maverick where their set will be eagerly awaited this time.
