Wednesday 9/13: Buck Meek – Haunted Mountain
A key creative force behind the band Big Thief, singer/songwriter/guitarist Buck Meek now has his 3rd solo album out. His pedal steel guitarist Mat Davidson writes: "In the songs, love often assumes a natural form - crystal ball dew-drops, green rivers and grasses, tears bottled. Sometimes it becomes artificial - mood rings, earrings, a pair of jeans, motorcycles and spacecraft. Sometimes cosmic - “I fell into a black hole with the hot flux of hazel”. Love is a consciousness here, interacting with the lovers, greeting them, watching them sometimes, becoming them sometimes." The title track is a co-write with Jolie Holland as a love song to Mount Shasta in California.
