Sam Evian Drops Latest Tune

If the sounds we’re hearing are any indication, we’ll end up spinning Sam Evian‘s latest LP quite a bit. He begins this track much like the accompanying video, allowing things to casually just cruise through your speakers. But, most importantly is how carefully he treats each guitar note; he’s got a hold of something that allows him to bend and turn each distorted note however he wishes, giving listeners an almost jammed out journey through time. Soft where it needs to be, forceful when called upon, Sam’s latest has it all. This tune is the title track off his You, Forever album, dropping on June 1st via Saddle Creek Records.

Sam Evian Announces New Album

Sam Evian, nee Sam Owens, originally came to my attention on Need You, his collaboration with the adored Chris Cohen. Today, news comes our way that there will be a new record from Sam, titled You, Forever. Our first listen has these softened vocals churning throughout, solidifying the track’s natural melody. But, Owen’s seems willing to throw down on some jams too, building some extensive solos into this track (and some sax too). It ends up being a crunchy hook-laden jam, something you might expect from a Kurt Vile in the early days. This new LP will drop June 1st via Saddle Creek.
