It’s been quite some time since I last posted on Jeff Walls and his Portland based project known as Campfires. Focusing mostly on recording and spotty touring over the last few years, Walls is returning this year with a new album called Fare Trax coming out on August 30th via Fire Talk. As a preview of the new material, we are happy to share the very first single entitled “I’ll Go Home”. Leaving behind some of the grit pop from earlier releases, this new material features a more washed out sound with some small hints of twangy, country guitars. It seems like a perfect evolution for an ever evolving artist.
Our amigo Justin Giles Wilcox grew to some moderate fame with his incomparable work in bands Nassau and Moonlight Bride. Having spent some years with those projects, Wilcox is stepping out again with his new project called Monteagle. We’ve previously heard his single “East L.A.” leaving us wanting more, and low and behold, here’s another new song today to build our anticipation of the new album. This one, “Master” features that cool, calm, and collected sound from Wilcox which creates a beautiful, soulful indie folk track.
Monteagle will release new album Midnight Moon on November 30th via Fire Talk Records.
