FREAKWATER was formed by Janet Bean and Catherine Irwin in 1989 and has been innovating and reinvigorating alt-country ever since. Following two records on Amoeba Records, the duo signed to Thrill Jockey in 1993 for the seminal Feels Like the Third Time, which was reissued on vinyl for Record Store Day 2012. The record opens with “My Old Drunk Friend,” perhaps the greatest song Hank Williams never wrote and features seven originals and five covers of songs by the likes of Conway Twitty, Woody Guthrie and Nick Lowe. 1995’s Old Paint showed the group’s songwriting coming into its own, and was their most critically acclaimed album to date. Freakwater is in the process of finishing a new album, recorded in Louisville at Kevin Ratterman’s La La Land studio, to be released in 2015.
Fans of the aggressive cacophony of Louisville’s Young Widows may be surprised when frontman Evan Patterson’s restrained acoustic guitar greets them at the top of …It’s Jayle Time!, the debut full-length from Patterson’s singer-songwriter alter ego JAYE JAYLE. The record follows the eponymous protagonist through a fever dream of sex, booze, loneliness, and demons out on the barren range of New Mexico. Live and in the studio, Patterson is joined by a loose assemblage of Louisville musicians that may include Jonathan Glen Wood (of Old Baby), Lowe Sutherland, Jim Marlowe (Tropical Trash/Astro Black Records), Todd Cook (Old Baby, Shipping News), and who knows who else? Eschewing a traditional LP release, …It’s Jayle Time! was released as a series of limited 7″ singles throughout 2014.
DRUNKEN PRAYER is Country “in the same way that The Silver Jews or Jon Wayne can be considered ‘country’, or Butthole Surfers can be considered ‘art rock’…Just think of it as music for literate underachievers, or the soundtrack to a Blue Velvet style back road joyride.”
