Topic: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I guess they started reviewing older albums recently (on the weekends)

American Water is for this weekend. Good read:

I dream in beige.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

are you sure this is the first review of this album from them?  pitchfork began in '96, so they were around when it came out.  and they've been known to try to "delete" embarrassing reviews from the past by writing new ones with the benefit of critical hindsight

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I just talked with David today. He has actually been working on something in vancouver canada. Details will start to spill soon..

NOT the first review, though in this case revisionist history has actually docked the album by .5 point. Yes, the original reviewer gave it a 9.9!

I believe you that you spoke with David, and I believe you that he says he's been "working on something" but I will not believe that until I hear it with my own ears. I miss David's songs terribly bad. Can't get my hopes up.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I saw this yesterday, too, found it interesting enough.

1MC, looking forward to more information. Songs would be great, but any words would be exciting. I hope he's in good health, I know he's had more than a few struggles, and especially nowadays it seems like heroin is just on another level of destruction.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

It'll be released on drag city. Thats more than I should even say...A colaboration.." It will quietly start appearing near the end of the year on the drag city site"..new moniker

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I will be so happy to get anything at all! Thanks for the tips, 1MC.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

Its something he spent many months working on and just completed. With a well known vancouver musician.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

not going to get too far ahead of myself or internet pressure you into revealing who that is. . . but I can think of one Cannuck who shares "DB" initials and that makes my head spin with excitement and possibility.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I'm cautiously optimistic too. Considering Drag City, the amount of time he spent in Canada, and who he worked on this with, it Does get me excited, but with trepidation.
Setyaback, the double DB is where it's at..

This is very exciting. 2018 could be great if the Jicks album comes together as well!

Mike, you are a champion among men.

A new moniker sounds VERY exciting!

Thank you for the update. You own this secret world of ours.

All hail the man, the myth, the legend....


Glad to see you posting, ol' Pal.

now, they're gonna burn me....

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I was coincidentally in Vancouver three weeks ago  - wonder if DCB was there at the same time : p

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

Seneca, do you know BC well? Does Purple Mountain ring a bell?
He just left a couple days ago, so yes, same time.

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

Interesting... I think I know what other DB we're referring to, but my knowledge of his main project is pretty much nil, I know the name from his association to the more prominent Matador act. Either way, this is super cool... best of luck to the DBs, looking forward to it!

Re: Pitchfork American Water review (new)

I could see how the double DBs would converge, but I'm trying to imagine what that would sound like and I'm having a rough, uneasy go. Of course it's laughably early to judge anything !

Do a little hopscotch

That's what has me so excited. Talk about vocal opposites! But if you think about where they fit into the songwriting landscape of the last 20 or so years, I think it's really an intriguing match.

I don't know anything more than you but we're definitely on the same page.
