For ten years, songwriter Al James + his band Dolorean have crafted much-lauded songs filled with equal portions hope, longing, loss, and beauty. This year, the winter of 2011 brought us 'The Unfazed' - Dolorean's long awaited fourth full length record. With their new homes at Partisan Records domestically and Fargo overseas, it began a fresh start for the band. Whereas 2007's 'You Can't Win' might've been about succumbing to loss, 'Unfazed' is about resilience. Each song is an artfully written story, performed by a talented team of musicians. Venus Magazine called it "...a breakup album done right. What could have been an easy-listening folk record about breakin up & movin on goes beyond just sadness.. " and NPR saw fit to include it on their early '11 best of-s.
We thank bass player James Adair's father-in-law for this apt summary of what makes Dolorean what it is: 'The heart and soul of Dolorean is the chord changes from tension to resolution; from dark to light; and the singer's voice and lyrics create a mood of acceptance without despair or should I say disappointment without resignation.'
