Straight-up Louisville post-rock but with a dash of wooded folk and oft-haunting dual vocals, King’s Daughters and Sons are just one of two avenues for checking out the stylings of Rachel Grimes this weekend. LouisvilleKY.com’s Forecastle X preview coverage continues as Louisville-native Rachel Grimes speaks to the differences between solo and collaborative efforts, whether or not a city can have a “sound” and her favorite places to perform.
Wax Fang’s relatively angst-free, smile-on-your-face jams are exceedingly refreshing in an age dominated by either the stripped-down or overly digitized. LouisvilleKY.com’s Forecastle X preview coverage continues with singer/guitarist/songwriter Scott Carney speaking of “quadraphonic love affairs”, the power of the local music scene, forthcoming Wax Fang releases and much more.
LouisvilleKY.com continues its Forecastle X preview coverage today via an extended chat with ‘She-Captain of the boat’ Holly Weyler. Wearer of an untold number of hats, Weyler talks My Morning Jacket, the festival’s 10-year-long progression towards big-boy-pants territory, the art of sharing our hometown and other nautical nonsense.
His band having just been announced as the festival headliners, the Louisville-native and decadently-bearded My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James joked of the this summer’s 10th annual Forecastle Music Festival a few weeks back that the theme would be, “Christmas in July”. And yet Christmas came even earlier than promised.
