    New school

    August 26, 2013

    Maybe -- perhaps -- Darin Gray has a new working trio with Chicago saxist Mars Williams and drummer Tyler Damon of Bloomington. The three have gone a few rounds and more are expected. This above shot is from an Aug. 23 show at St. Louis Art Museum.

    Hoi' Polloi Peeks Out

    July 21, 2013

    Forty-one years after its release, Hoi' Polloi's lone LP is available again. After a call from the new upstart reissue label Folk Evaluation, we decided to get in on this fabled Indiana record and help inject it back into the world. This new edition, is a beaut -- from the exact replication of jacket, labels and insert to the audio that was remastered from the original tapes. It's already been described as "the rare moment when a Paul McCartney comparison is apt. Nilsson, too." Not to mention the avant studio techniques used to lay this unheard masterpiece to tape. No need to pay $100s for this anymore. Above, Hoi' Polloi songwriter Charlie Bleak basks in the afterglow of his past. Full details here.

    Loren Connors in The Out Door

    June 20, 2013

    The ultimate Loren Connors overview has been written and compiled by the fine gents at The Out Door column over at Pitchfork. It is epic, beautiful and covers Loren's four decades as an artist and musician. It's got it all, from a summary of his many albums -- including many on FV -- and interviews with Suzanne Langille, Darin Gray, Alan Licht, Jim O'Rourke, some guy named Jandek and few others. Please, spend some time with this one.
