Fulton Read You and I ALBUM COVER (FINAL)Long Lost Band, Fulton Read releases 20 song epic “You and I” as their final album.   “inspired by the works of Alex Grey, this double concept album gets existential addressing polarities, interconnectedness and our macro and micro realities”

Long thought to be dead and abandoned, the musical project Fulton Read has re-emerged from a long coma with a 20-song epic double album entitled “You and I”.  Self-produced, the album includes guest appearances from some of Austin’s finest musicians including Adrian Quesada, SORNE, Zeale, Candi Sanders, Alexander Beggins, Kelsey Wilson and Sadie Wolfe of Wild Child along with several instrumental collaborators.  With the first half go the album our now, the entire album will be released Monday January 19th, just three and a half years after its production began.

Ranging from Fulton Read’s signature psych piano power pop sound to heavier alternative rock influences and even a tango, this album explores uncharted territory for the band previously compared to Ben Folds or Something Corporate.  They are now diving into a more progressive rock sound with jazz influences and electronic production, interwoven segues and ambience touching more on the likes of MUSE or Supertramp.  Meant to take the listener through a constant journey, the album floats from sonf to song as if one were drifting from dream to dream, interluded by monitor songs and ambient intermissions.

Headed by Austin musician, promoter and music industry supporter, Anthony Erickson, Fulton Read has been the singer/songwriter/pianist’s primary outlet since their formation in 2004.

Cheer up Charlies 11/14/14

We went to Cheer up Charlies new location this past Friday the 14.   It has been a while since the last time we ventured out to cover local music but we were pleasantly surprised by the local talent.

The night started with musician Sydney Wright, a one woman show from Snyder Texas.  She was not only very original with her lyrics that more than once remind us of multitude of break ups, much a la ‘Taylor Swift’  but with a closer to home authentic feel.

Danny’s Speeddreamer release album was the occasion for the gathering and the place was packed. We would have missed Danny’s performance had we not planned right, feeding the parking meter in between acts counts as a work out/speed walk/race against the clock.

Self-produced record, said to be recorded in isolation with one mic and a 4-track cassette recorder, the production was a raw mix of acoustics and soul searching lyrics.
