Mister Hazelwood and the New Transcendentalists CD Release Party 

When: Thu., Nov. 11, 6 p.m. 2010
Open-mic night at a spooky cabaret? The soundtrack to a disease-ridden puppet show? Neither description exactly fits the new project by Joseph Hazelwood, formerly one-half of the local husband-wife duo Ode Hazelwood, but they hint at the offbeat arrangements, spectral mood and man-out-of-time oddity of his ghostly songs. His lugubrious vampire croon can take some getting used to, but there’s a compellingly sickly soundscape smeared across his rather wishfully titled new CD The Golden Age — a spacy miasma of keyboard and guitar atmospherics, eerie glissandos and instruments that blurp and wheeze like a phantom calliope, captured by producer Joe McMahan with as little studio trickery as possible. Attention all music supervisors: here’s your one-man True Blood soundtrack. The CD release show is open to the public as part of the Frist Center’s weekly offerings of free live music.
