1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. Modern Country is the fourth full-length album by guitarist and composer William Tyler and his first recorded outside of his hometown of Nashville Tennessee. It features an ensemble backing group consisting of multi-instrumentalist Phil Cook Hiss Golden Messenger Blind Boys of Alabama bassist Darin Gray Tweedy Jim ORourke and percussionist Glenn Kotche Wilco. The album was tracked at April Base Studios in Eau Claire Wisconsin and finished in Nashville recorded and mixed by Jon Ashley and produced by Tyler and Brad Cook. While there is never a comfort zone in instrumental music Tyler attempts to leave any perceived one behind with Modern Country. His first album for Merge 2013s Impossible Truth found Tyler exploring the boundaries of composition for solo guitar in a manner that paid homage to everyone from Leo Kottke to Brian Wilson. It was an epic song cycle that veered from cathedral-like psychedelic hymns to pastoral folk melodies. In contrast Modern Country finds Tyler exploring more focused melodic themes rather than ethereal wanderings. These arent pop songs per se but they are closer in spirit to Neu Penguin Cafe Orchestra and Bill Frisell.
