STEPHEN MALKMUS - TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUES VINYL (LTD. ED. RED)
LIMITED EDITION RED VINYL
Release Date: 6th March 2020
"‘Traditional Techniques’, out on Domino, is new phase folk music for new phase folks, with Stephen Malkmus as attuned as ever to the rhythms of the ever-evolving lingual slipstream. It’s packed with handmade arrangements, modern folklore and 10 songs written and performed in his singular voice. Centred around the songwriter’s 12-string acoustic guitar and informed by a half-century of folk-rock reference points, ‘Traditional Techniques’ is the product of Malkmus and Halfling engineer/arranger-inresidence Chris Funk (The Decemberists). Additionally, Matt Sweeney (Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Chavez) plays guitar throughout, creating gorgeous folk music, with the occasional bursts of flute-laced swagger and straight-up commune rock."
