We spent some time in LA, lost our minds, and left with this video. Whoooooa! Thanks EIT!
It was rad to play with Steve Earle in Chicago last week. I was like, “Can I take a picture with you, is that lame?” He was like, “No man, it’s totally cool, I have a picture of me with Willie Nelson in my phone right now.” Looking forward to crossing paths again…
In the Woods Festival in the UK is an enchanted confluence of musicians, sculpture, video installation, camping, and community meals. We were so stoked to be part of its 10th anniversary! Thanks to Hinako, Joel, and Gus from alt-J for inviting us into this special community of beautiful creative music lovers! Here’s us ripping Pennsylvania Turnpike in a Barn Session.
Got a bunch of nice press this year. Thought we’d look back on some kind words…
“Al Scorch plays the banjo like he knows the most scenic spots on the Appalachian Trail”
“For years, Chicago-based musician Al Scorch has been the living embodiment of how punk’s spirit has crossed over into other genres of music.”
“Chicago singer/songwriter Al Scorch has a sound influenced by old timey country and bluegrass but also raw driving punk. It sometimes sounds like a more bluegrass version of Neutral Milk Hotel.”
