I was really into the spooky folk tunes that Chief Ghoul gave out last year, and in fact covered him quite frequently. Now, as he preps a brand new album, Damned, Lee Miles, has unleashed a single to get you interested. It’s almost a jangly country ballad, using steady strumming support Miles’ voice, which often takes on those darkened tin-can tones. He’s like the poorman’s Tallest Man, and in that, seems like a lot more soul in every note he sings. Keep an eye out for news on the LP; you’ll likely find it here.
Made it through another day of pics. Day Two includes attempts to indeed Keep Shelly in Athens, a little time on Future Islands, Fugazi’ing solo, rolling in the T’Bird, being Formidably Joyful, Tuning the Yard, Egging on a Riot, rolling on the M83, pic’ing up some Girls, paparazzi’ing Ms. Li and salvation from The Damned.
Head past the break for the pics, a link to many more pics and a commentary…
