The Bloomed Hill Impasse
Often overlooked (but hopefully not forgotten) Richard Buckner has signed with Merge Records, who, by way of introduction, is re-releasing some of his best work previous. A tour is soon to follow in support of this Americana goldmine.
On March 10, three albums by Richard Buckner (Bloomed, The Hill, and Impasse) will be available as digital downloads from the Merge Records site (and presumably other places that trade in such stock as well). He will also be touring this coming Spring in support of these somewhat overlooked masterpieces. Though my introduction to the man came when he embarrassed Kris Kristofferson by way of superior tribute (#7 down: "Loving Her Was Easier"), I quickly covered these Buckner gaps in my catalog. Here's your chance to do the same.
