The stellar Chicago duo of Ryley Walker and Bill MacKay return next month with SpiderBeetleBee, a collection of fluid acoustic freedom flights, floating from Britfolk excursions to hazy rambles into unclassifiable zones. Walker and MacKay have an easy, loose-limbed rapport throughout — no one’s leading and no one’s following; it’s more like they’re discovering these songs together. Get a taste of SpiderBeetleBee via “Lonesome Traveler,” here accompanied by Kim Alpert’s found footage collage, a perfect visual complement to the song’s dusty, meditative musings.  words / t wilcox
