John Calvin Abney :: Tourist

by

John Calvin Abney, geboren in het gokstadje Reno in Nevada, besloot na de corona-uitbraak in 2020, zijn spullen te verkopen, rond te gaan trekken en te logeren bij vrienden her en der in Amerika. Zijn belangrijkste gezelschap was het boek Travels With Charley van John Steinbeck. Onderwijl schreef hij liedjes waarin hij de indrukken van zijn tocht verwerkte. Het resultaat is het toepasselijk getitelde Tourist, een zeer geslaagd huwelijk tussen literatuur en muziek. Een even bijzondere als prachtige plaat!

Though it was recorded in an assortment of rooms and hotels across California, Nevada, Texas, and Oklahoma, Tourist feels remarkably durable. Abney sees it as a companion piece to his 2020 Familiar Ground LP but there’s a lightness here that was less pronounced previously, a kind of woozy solace you find in travel, in embracing new beginnings. Using his personal portable studio, this is no troubadour with a busted guitar story, instead, Abney grows his songs, weaving drum machines, samplers, and synthesizers into the songs, fleshing the recordings out with sole collaborator John Moreland, who performed his parts and mixed from his own studio, using the internet to create the album over even longer distances.
