Method again in September, which is a few decade in the past in keeping with my expertise of time, David Grubbs and Ryley Walker obtained collectively to launch a improbable collaborative album, A Faucet on the Shoulder, through Ryley’s Husky Pants label. The album brings the 2 former Chicagoans collectively for the primary time for seven free, explorative guitar tracks with Grubbs additionally contributing some piano.
Although the pair received’t be touring behind the file (for now, anyway), they did get collectively final month for a one-off file launch present at Public Data in Brooklyn. For 50 minutes they alternate between ruminative wanderings and dizzying freakouts, neither soloing or overwhelming the opposite. It seems like they’re listening to one another simply as a lot as they’re enjoying their very own guitars. You don’t see two performers of this caliber get collectively fairly often, and I’m glad we had been there to seize it.
Ryley Walker isn’t touring with David Grubbs, however you'll be able to nonetheless catch him dwell this month and past. Verify the dates over at his web site!
