Seasonal Hire has arrived

February 25, 2015 | Black Twig Pickers

Fellow travelers Steve Gunn and the Black Twig Pickers took turns throwing matches at a pile of kerosene-soaked banjo heads and the resulting inferno is "Seasonal Hire," just out from Thrill Jockey. This is music caught just as it reached the ignition point, a record of song unspooling into sound and back again, of journeys taken or still being mapped, of memories and wishes all tangled together to glint and reflect as they snare. We have LP and CD copies.
