Visionary Americana

Better late than never and we’re back with an oversized episode for your Summer listening. This time we talk to four different artists: Andy McLeod, Joseph Allred, Eli Winter, and Jon Camp; about their new records and about their place in and perception of the so-called "American Primitive" school of guitar. We share some of their tunes and then, of course, we spin some good old Grateful Dead.

So much new music is covered in this episode, it’s a little dizzying. In addition to the great guests, I mentioned the Phil & Friends shows from The Cap that you absolutely should check out. There’s also the new Prana Crafter/Tarotplane split LP available here, the Dire Wolves record that you can find here and Jeffery Alexander’s solo album that’s available here.
