Jake Xerxes Fussell's Fall Line Radio.

Jake Xerxes Fussell’s Fall Line Radio.

ICYMI, a PSA: Local purveyor of fine tunes and stiff brims Jake Xerxes Fussell hosts a weekly two-hour radio show down the road at WHUP in Hillsborough, NC—with sometimes co-host and chicken-bog expert Jefferson Currie II: “Our idea of ‘southern’ is broad and inclusive and distances itself from stagnant notions of authenticity, exclusivity, and antiquity. As much as we cherish our prewar blues 78s and “old-time” fiddle tunes, we also love hip-hop, bounce, banda, and norteña.”

Red River Dialect Announce Broken Stay Open Sky + Share "Kukkuripa" via NPR.

Red River Dialect Announce Broken Stay Open Sky + Share “Kukkuripa” via NPR.

The London-based band (with Cornish roots) brings a windswept energy and daylight to a contemplative, gorgeously rendered suite of songs about inhabiting the landscape, and our bodies, in joy and pain alike. This is the band’s most ambitious and emotionally affecting work to date: atmospheric but deeply rooted, equally concerned with investigating the concrete and the cosmic, both quiet details of the everyday and looming matters of faith.

Gun Outfit:  Out of Range  (PoB-036)

Gun Outfit: Out of Range (PoB-036)

Like a stone eroded by years in the arroyo, Gun Outfit’s “Western expanse” aesthetic of guitar levitations and honky-tonk hexes has become gradually smoother. Their fifth LP ranks as their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Drawing from mythologies both classical and postmodern, Out of Range builds a world in which Brueghel, St. Augustine, and the goddess Cybele ride with John Ford, Samuel Beckett, and Wallace Stevens on a Orphic-Gnostic suicide drive towards the hallucinatory vanishing points of the Southwestern desert, debating the denouement of the decaying American dream.
