June 22, join Ryley Walker and Aquarium Drunkard to benefit the ACLU at Trans Pecos in Queens, New York, To prep, give this a spin. Recorded at Fivethirteen Recording in Arizona in the fall of 2016, this collection finds Walker, drummer Ryan Jewell, and bassist Anton Hatwich working through a set of new, experimental recordings. In many ways, they presage the direction Walker and co. would take on Deafman Glance and The Lillywhite Sessions—knotty, electric, and searching. We previously shared these recordings, along with a loopy, freewheeling interview, as part of our Transmissions podcast series, but we’re presenting them here now on their own. Enjoy, and get your tickets to see Walker and friends live in Queens right here.
Recorded live from the historic Capitol Studios on October 19th, 2015.
