Released: 27.08.21






Anderson and Tyler were brought together by a David Berman tribute concert and inspired by a Mark Fisher quote, which says a lot. It’s amazing that it’s taken so long for these two gifted and inventive musicians, no strangers to collaboration, to work together and the result is predictably great. Both have their roots in country and folk and old weird America, always pushing against what that means, and here their guitars circle and swoop around each other like birds, supported at times by sparingly used instrumentation – strings and keys and jawbones.

There’s hints of mariachi and flamenco, delicate folk and – on Something Will Come – a menacing, propulsive explosion of riffs. It’s a delight to hear two musicians sound so well connected. What a wonderful record.
