This week, singer/songwriter Richard Buckner releases Our Blood (Merge), his first new music since 2006’s Meadow. The nine-track LP was recorded by Buckner at his upstate New York home studio with pedal-steel guitarist Buddy Cage (New Riders Of The Purple Sage) and drummer Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth). Buckner kicks off a co-headlining tour with labelmate David Kilgour (the Clean) on August 16 in Los Angeles. In the meantime, Buckner will be guest editing magnetmagazine.com all week. Read our brand new Q&A with him.
Buckner: Libation recession is what I call the current economic bar crisis. When you can’t afford to go out, you stay in. Drinking in the kitchen can save the shrinking tender, but you know it’s serious when you have to go from Grey Goose to Tito’s. At least Tito’s is gluten free. My waistline thanks me with every economically induced pour.
