Bandcamp Friday: February 2023

Bandcamp Friday is back!

I thought I’d celebrate by doing a quick catch-up on non-bloggy writing of mine that’s come out in January, starting with…

49 Winchester — Fortune Favors the Bold

I had a chance to speak with 49 Winchester frontman Isaac Gibson about the amazing year they had last year, as well as the band’s beginnings in Russell County, Virginia. Click here to check out the resulting article and hear Gibson sing about Russell County below.

Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams — Live At Levon’s!

I’m still pinching myself at having gotten to speak with Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, who found “musical nirvana” working with one another after so many years working alongside some of music’s biggest names. I absolutely love their new live album. Read about it here, and if you’re in Richmond, I can’t recommend their show tonight at Richmond Music Hall highly enough.

Gold Connections — “Around Your Eye

I spoke with Will Marsh of Gold Connections about the Indiegogo he’s launched to fund studio time for his next album, as well as the song he’s made the centerpiece of that campaign, “Around Your Eye.” It’s a characteristically killer song, and you can read about what inspired it here.

David Shultz — “Coaster

Not a new song, but I did get to do a new interview with David Shultz recently. He and the founder of Sefton Coffee Co., Jennie-Mae Skinner, have started a new and wildly enchanting listening room series in the basement space next door to their coffee shop. Read about it here and be sure to snag a ticket for the next one soon — I bet it’ll sell out quick.

Other stuff I have my eye on:

Joe Westerlund — Elegies for the Drift
Philip James Murphy Jr — wren in the rain
Bradford Thomas — Bradventure 5
Hotspit — Memory of a Mirror Image
Mink’s Miracle Medicine — “Bottomless Lake” (John Prine cover)
