RIYL: Appalachian folk, Delta Blues, 60s psych

Label: Soul Step Records

Fresh off the highly successful Lemonade 7″ from The Gills, Soul Step Records have readied their next hitmakers with indie folk duo Walking Man.  If David Longstreth (Dirty Projectors) decided to front a band versed in America’s folky roots, you’d get something similar to Walking Man.  Both singers know how to stretch their vocals to challenging lengths, straining and grasping those out-of-reach notes with passion and fire.  Combining elements of Appalachian folk, hand-clapping Delta blues and the early experimental psych bands of the mid 60s, there’s a little something in here for every critical listener.

The translucent violet 7″ variant went up already for the label’s subscription members, but the remaining 40 copies will be sold on Monday, August 1st, at 10:00 AM.  Once those are gone, you’ll be able to get the black vinyl version, but if you dig that colored vinyl as much as I do, be ready tomorrow!  Check out both tracks from the 7″ after the ‘buy’ link.

The Details

Limited to 100 translucent violet 7"s.
Once the translucent violet has been sold out, Soul Step will be selling the Walking Man vinyl in standard black vinyl.

Price $8
