Tomorrow! Don't miss it! ... See MoreSee Less

Nashville guitarist WILLIAM TYLER will stop in Asheville for a free performance at Harvest Records while touring behind his new album MODERN COUNTRY out now on Merge Records. "There may be hints of John Fahey and Sandy Bull in every instrumental guitarist that have come in their wake, but Modern Country especially suggests that Tyler’s aims are more diverse than re-inflating a genre that’s fallen out of favor. With the exception of “Kingdom of Jones,” a sparse acoustic track (and one of Tyler’s best to date), he leans heavily here on the electric guitars that only showed up in the margins before. His instrumentals are similar to what he’s done on his previous records — droning folk fingerpickings as intricately woven as the tapestries that line the halls of the Cloisters — but with the electronic spark they land with a jolt that they never have before. New to the fold are bits of spectral feedback, slowly pattering drum machines, and chattering birds (much like Yo La Tengo’s sleepier material, for that matter), and they allow Tyler’s ancient melodies to gleam and glow. Think old blues riffs with a chrome finish — sleek, and, well, modern, a reinvention and re-contextualization that pays stunning tribute to what came before it." www.spin.com/2016/05/review-william-tyler-modern-country/?utm_source=spintwitter&utm_medium=socia...
