Limited translucent black smoke colored vinyl LP pressing. Includes digital download. Led by drummer Jose Medeles (Breeders, 1939 Ensemble, Revival Drum Shop), "Railroad Cadences & Melancholic Anthems" is a drummer's tribute to guitarist and DIY iconoclast John Fahey. Joined for a series of guitar and drum duets with M. Ward, experimental guitarist Marisa Anderson, and Chris Funk (Decemberists, Stephen Malkmus), it's a genuinely honorific project, featuring not Fahey compositions, but rather a series of improvised rendezvous inspired and informed by his looseness and rhythmic idiosyncrasies. Recording in the comfortable setting of Bocce Recording in Vancouver, WA, in 2020, these duets are playful and spiritually deep, presented with snapshot clarity Medeles likens to the recordings of Alan Lomax or Chris Strachwitz, "who boldly captured field recordings of Southern chain gangs and juke joint raconteurs decades ago. The result here is similar: pure and honest recordings."
