RECORD STORE DAY // Ryley Walker Announces Release Of ‘Cannots’ With Charles Rumback

3hhs_doc115

On April 16th, Ryley Walker will release a Record Store Day full-length recorded with Charles Rumback titled, Cannots.

 

Fellow denizens of Chicago, IL, Rumback (drums, organ) and Walker (acoustic and electric guitar, piano, bells) laid down Cannots during two short sessions, a month apart, overseen by Brian J. Sulpizio. Each player’s schedule was too hectic ahead of these sessions to allow any time to discuss the direction of the record, so what you hear was wholly improvised on the spot. The results maybe recall the legendary jams of Sandy Bull and Billy Higgins, perhaps the soundtrack work of Ry Cooder, or Neil Young circa Dead Man…whatever you hear there is an undeniably magical chemistry at play.

Ryley Walker‘s already had a full year – and it’s not even March. His passport got stamped in Bosnia, Macedonia, Croatia (for the first time no less) on his Central & Eastern European tour. On his inaugural Australian tour, Walker opened for Joanna Newsom at the Sydney Opera House. While in Glasgow, Walker played two sold out Bert Jansch tribute shows alongside legends such as Robert Plant, Jacqui Mcshee, Archie Fisher, Graham Coxon and Ben Watt. Walker’s currently touring as a duo with Danny Thompson (Pentangle, Nick Drake, Talk Talk) and will open for Deer Tick once he returns stateside.

 

Cannots is available in limited edition, electric-blue vinyl, featuring cover art by Adam F Scott(adamscottstudio.com), and will be released by Dead Oceans on Record Store Day 2016. Full list of dates below.

WATCH // New Ryley Walker Documentary and Record Store Day Takeover in London

During the month of April in a UK city near you, you’re likely to see an affable mid-western American charmer, purposefully roaming your streets. He’ll be wielding an acoustic guitar, and likely frequenting your local pub for the best lagers on offer before he plays a killer set featuring tracks from his highly praised Dead Oceans debut Primrose Green.

He goes by the name Ryley Walker, and if he does pop into your local and you do say “hi”, that tiny speck of doubt about not attending one of his seven shows in the United Kingdom will be as distant as that inconsequential dream about “work” or “family” you had last night.

Here’s a handy list to help you plan your venture to one of the best folk-jazz shows around – dates and venues that transcend the North/South divide. He truly is the man for all the people:

04/18/15 London, UK – Sebright Arms [Sold Out]
04/19/15 Manchester, UK – The Castle BUY TICKETS
04/20/15 Bristol, UK – Start The Bus BUY TICKETS
04/21/15 Cardiff, UK – Clwb lfor Bach BUY TICKETS
04/22/15 Coventry, UK – The Tin at the Coal Vaults BUY TICKETS
04/23/15 Leeds, UK – Brudenell Cards Room BUY TICKETS
04/24/15 Brighton, UK – The Hope & Ruin [SOLD OUT]

Fans based in London that might have missed the boat on his now sold out show at East London’s local haunt the Sebright Arms, are lucky on two accounts. Firstly, in light of the Record Store Day taking place this Saturday [18/04], Walker will be playing tow in-stores at west and central London’s inimitable independent record stores Sister Ray and Rough Trade West. Full times and line up below, and it’ll be strictly intimate and unplugged.

Rough Trade West – 12.30
Sister Ray Soho – 14.00
Sister Ray Ace – 17.30

Secondly, some wily booking agent has thought ahead for those who’d like to see Walker and his full band. Although you’ll have to wait a few months if you missed out on this weekend’s headline slot, Walker will play Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on 2 September. Buy tickets here, while they’re still available.

But why take our word for it? Their are a litany of UK based journalist who’d also state that missing a Walker show would be a grave mistake, and here are the quotes to prove it:

“An instant out-of-time classic… “
Uncut – 9/10 (Album Of The Month)

“Walker has arrived at the same questing folk-jazz territory explored by Tim Buckley and John Martyn – but with equivalent intensity, not limp nostalgia… Utterly delightful and as fresh as tomorrow.”
The Independent – 5 Stars *****

“Ryley is firmly in the lineage of romantic outsider folk guitarists.”
MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“Combining jazzy looseness, rustic picking and an undertow of drugular mind expansion, this is one head cocktail that leaves no pain after it hits.”
Q – 4 Stars ****

“Walker has an uncanny feel for the triangulation of folk, jazz and blues that came from the fleet fingers of Bert Jansch and John Fahey”
NME – 8/10

“Essential listening.”
The Sun – 4.5/5

“Lovers of Bert Jansch and John Martyn will listen to the jazzy chord changes and tales of misadventures on Primrose Green and wonder whether this is really a new release or are they experiencing an unussually mellow acid flashback. The record is bound together by an appealingly laconic mood.”
The Times – 4 Stars ****

“For his dazzling second album, Walker flaunts his influences with assurance, while his virtuoso diligence also upholds their spirit of committed exploration.”
The Independent on Sunday – 4 Stars ****

“A beautiful record… Sometimes a new artist comes along that makes you pause for breath.”
Shinding – 4 Stars ****

A mystical record… Expansive and moving.
DIY – 4 Stars ****
