We tracked "Bright Flight" in a basement studio in Nashville over just a few days, all live, barely any overdubs, straight to two inch tape. I have fond memories of frequenting local burger haunts with Tim Barnes and being the designated driver most evenings for David and Marky (Nevers). I feel like this is precisely the kind of album David moved to Nashville to make: old school and no nonsense, with accompaniment that manages to embellish while still being sympathetic.
It was a good learning experience. Yeah, I think he’s a good artist with a solid sense of self, narrative, and aesthetic. I think he’s hit the nail on the head in regards to making art in the tradition of American indigenous culture, that is now infused with advanced capitalist and media culture, so technically, I suppose I could understand myself as a fan of that.
Wait, indigenous huh? Well, at least we're getting known for stuff other than the stuff we're usually known for. Keep it up, other places!
