Long-delayed second album by Olympia-to-NYC singer-songwriter Zachary Cale, recorded in pro fashion at Bearsville Studios in 2005; the late date of release and the album’s title might give the story away. Playing solo and with full band accompaniment, this loner/Leonard Cohen acolyte plays an accomplished guitar and writes serious lyrics with poetic depth. He’s able to pull it off extraordinarily well, too, at times recalling the Mark Fry LP none of us had heard until recently. The graveness of some of this music might hold Cale back from greater acceptance, but it’s not necessarily the lightest of us that’s going to be remembered on down the line. Cold, chilly folk for dark times.
Combining the out-of-print Make A Mess 7-inch and the Captured Tracks out-of-print 7-inch with one new track. A great place to start if you missed either of those items. Hypnotic, un-twee indie pop. The real deal. Includes one fantastic new track, “I Start With Your Name”
Six new songs of homespun psychedelic pop.
Seven-song mini-LP, available on CD or 12" LP
