KEELED SCALES

RF Shannon

Rain On Dust

    Rain On Dust is RF Shannon's third album in three years. It expands on their desert soul sound, which has also been described as deconstructed Americana, mellow psych, and shoegaze country. Features Jordan Moseronnyl on-string guitar and Neil Lord of Future Museums and Single Lash on electric guitar. This album is their first with Keeled Scales, coming quickly on the heels of Trickster Blues, (released in May 2018 via Cosmic Dreamer). With this album they've swum even deeper into the great underground rivers of American song and have put to tape timeless, memorable songs that sink in on first listen. Instant classic "Wild Rose Pass" has always been right there. "Angeline" and "Don't Be Shy" have nods to 60s rock, with deep choruses, shuffled drums, and gorgeous harmonies. "Ballad of a Thin Place" is a woozy dark ballad that would have been right at home on the "Rolling Thunder Revue." RF Shannon is a band that defies easy classification and bridges multiple genres, not an easy feat. At the heart of these songs is strong songwriting and musicianship.

    Buck Meek

      Buck Meek's solo album is a natural extension of his integral role in Big Thief (co-founding member and lead guitarist). The 10 song collection recalls, reflects and expands upon personal experiences prior to the Brooklyn quartet's success. There's emotive familiarity in his poignantly pretty lyrics and an enlightening newness to the songs' structures. These beautifully blended qualities, as well as musical contributions from Adam Brisbin on guitar (Jolie Holland, Sam Evian, Katie Von Schleicher), Mt. Davidson on bass (Twain, The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion), and Austin Vaughn on drums (Here We Go Magic, Luke Temple, Sam Evian), make Buck Meek an album to hear. It was released on Austin-based indie label Keeled Scales on May 18, 2018.

      Buck Meek has toured with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Sam Evian, Twain, and Margaret Glaspy. He’s also played SXSW the past two years. In 2018 he played at Willie Nelson's Luck Reunion, enthusiastically previewed in NPR's Austin 100 and accurately captured by American Songwriter. "A thrilling elaboration of all the things that make Meek's guitar playing so compelling in Big Thief ... When he plays live, he channels the tension of his body into his dynamic playing, which is jumpy and electrifying as an ungrounded wire. Here, he matches that dynamism with his voice's own odd inflections and a twisted yarn of a story." NPR // "A relaxed country rocker with some serious lead guitar" Brooklyn Vegan // "Wonderful indie folk ... indebted to vintage country"

      Jo Schornikow

      Secret Weapon

        Secret Weapon is Australian songwriter Jo Schornikow (keyboardist in Phosphorescent)'s stunning label debut. It's a devastatingly beautiful indie-pop album that eddies into dreamy nooks, while staying firmly rooted in strong melodies. It's a quiet record, adorned with subtle swells of synths and shimmering washes of guitars. Jo's calm, assured voice is that of a touring musician who's spent much of the past 10 years on the road in Phosphorescent and The Shivers and is now very much at home in this world. She's been the secret weapon to other songwriters, but now she's stepping out and sharing these gorgeous songs. While her partner Matthew Houck's band Phosphorescent carves a wide swath through cosmic country, Jo's songs thrive in a dusk-lit territory neighboring pop, shoegaze, and ambient experimental music. These are very much folk songs, but translated through the tools Jo Schornikow has at hand.
