[mp3] Richard Buckner – “Traitor”

It’s been 5 long years since we’ve gotten a new record from husky-voiced troubadour Richard Buckner, but word came today that Merge will release Our Blood on August 2.  The press release mentions the long gap being partially due to a brief brush with the law over a headless corpse in a burned-out car that had all eyes in Buckner’s small hometown in upstate New York turned toward him and his long-suffering truck.  Understandable then.  Check out “Traitor”, which, like his best work, combines slightly skewed mid-tempo folk with a rural mystique.
