freakwater

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.”

Recommended if you like: ZZ Top, Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac

Message found on No Quarter‘s answering machine:

“Hey Mike-Thanks for sendin over the latest from ENDLESS BOOGIE. So ‘Long Island’ makes, what, their 7th trip around the vinyl horn? You gotta give it to’em, they’re style of blast don’t ever get old. I once seen Boog Powell in this post game, after he’d hit two dingers off the A’s, & the interviewer asked “do ya ever get tired of blastin’em over the fence”? Boog ruminated this for a second, gave way to scratchin his head, then locked eyes w/the natterin pipsqueak, smiled & said ‘NOPE”!. And look at him now? The king of Baltimore BBQ.

So I was thinkin ENDLESS BOOGIE is in the same class (okay, hold the Baltimore & hold the BBQ). Who don’t love’em? Mike, even GIRLS BUY THESE RECORDS. There ain’t no better testimonial to greatness than that! Let the pencil-neck ‘n fat bottomed crit boys yammer on about comparisons to Coloured Balls, Trad Gras, Velvets, etc. At the end of the day it’s the sonic stats that get pasted into ENDLESS BOOGIE‘s page of the Rock & Roll Almanac. And in them annals they’s battin 1000%. Pitchin’s solid to boot. So it seems a mystery to me why’s anyone would have to reach into the hyperbolic ether to pull down accurate tags. I mean, shit, ‘Long Island’ could almost be the second coming of ‘Brain Capers’. You know? I can see you makin that pissy- ass face of yours, & sure, a Mott The Hoople comparison is about as psychedelic as an onion. But you know who liked onions? Ollie fuckin Halsall for one. They say he ate his the same way Kevin Ayers breeze through life – pickled. Don’t think for uno momento that Norberto ‘Pappo’ Napolitano didn’t consume tons of the allium genus in his lifetime. The man ate’em slathered’em on grilled beef every day of his life liked it growed on trees! To say nothin of the band Troyka, whose member, Ron Lukawitski was THE originator of the Bloomin Onion. But that’s yrs ago, up to Edmonton, Alberta at a little place called Harry Hill’s where is was known as the ‘Puckered Fist’. I reckon they figured it was a well kept secret. How’s Outback Steakhouse come to….procure….the recipe is one of life’s great mysteries. Now I ain’t no licensed shaman but these ears don’t lie. And they’s insinuatin that ‘Long Island’ is chock full’ve more phenols ‘n flavonoids that you can shake a brace’ve Groundhogs albums at. And Mike? If you’s is still in the throes of menopause, I have it on good authority that Top Dollar’s voice is so witchy that it can destroy osteoclats, thus keepin them delicate bones of yours safe. The same was said about Ariel Bender’s back in the day too. But only when he was Luther Grosvenor. Tellin, don’t you think? Now pass the relish, I think I’m Patto.”

SIMON JOYNER with JAYE JAYLE at GREENHAUS, Saturday, December 14th

Untitled

Undertow Music and The Other Side of Life are proud to present:

SIMON JOYNER (Omaha, Nebraska)

with

JAYE JAYLE (Louisville, Kentucky; on Sophomore Lounge)

in a special, intimate living room show

Saturday, December 14th
at GREENHAUS
2227 S. Preston
7 PM, $15
Tickets available online at: http://www.undertowtickets.com/product/simon-joyner-louisville-ky-december-14-8pm and at the door (cash only!).

Love and death: these are the only themes. So it’s been in SIMON JOYNER’s twenty years of making records—from 1992’s Umbilical Chords cassette to his most recent double LP, GhostsJOYNER’s music gathers acolytes rather than casual fans, contributing to his “songwriter’s songwriter” status and inspiring comparisons to other artists like Bill Fay, Townes Van Zandt, David Blue, and Leonard Cohen.

It’s minimal, it’s trance, it’s blues… it’s Jayle time! JAYE JAYLE play songs inspired by traveling, being disconnected, and being in love. Restlessly, yet relaxed, JAYE JAYLE rides up and down and boogies around in a vortex furnished with sandy desert dreams. Saddle up or pull up a chair, either way would be and will be just fine.

Watch the video for Jaye Jayle‘s “Pull Me Back to Hell” here:

It takes balls to let PURLING HISS get in your face- their records are a half-corroded, screaming roar of high-end guitars crushed together, obliterating vocals and drums with their singular assault. Well, if you’ve got balls, get ready to swing ‘em! With their new album Water On MarsPURLING HISS have broken out of the basement, run through the bedroom and are now loose, out in the streets, blasting one of the great guitar albums in the past couple minutes.
