Mike Polizze’s acoustic album Long Lost Solace Find was one of 2020’s prettiest and most laid back folk rock recordings. But with Purling Hiss’ Drag On Girard, he resumed his assault on the ampflier with a blistered headlong brilliance. He joins us to discuss.
On Dizzy Demos: 2 Tickets to Cheeseburger in Paradise, songwriter Mike Polizze reveals the ramshackle core of his solo debut Long Lost Solace Find, collecting demos and outtakes from the album’s original sessions. The former Purling Hiss frontman’s songs shine in nascent form, tugging at threads that connect to country rock, glam, and classic loner folk. For his first ever Lagniappe Session, Polizze keeps things similarly direct and locked in, with two sparse traditional songs.
