Water Liars and Adam Faucett Tonight at The Stone Fox

Posted By on Thu, Jan 17, 2013 at 4:17 PM

If you're not a fan of NOLA hip-hopper Curren$y — who performs tonight at Limelight alongside local faves Dee Goodz and Ducko McFli — then perhaps folk troubadour Justin Kinkel-Schuster of Water Liars is more your speed. Contributor Edd Hurt filed a Critic's Pick for us on the subject of Mr. Kinkel-Schuster, who will play tonight at The Stone Fox with Arkansan songster Adam Faucett. Have a look:

If modern folk music seems more naturally expressionist than the efforts of such ’60s and ’70s exemplars as Tom Rush, Joni Mitchell and Bert Jansch, the reason may have something to do with the harshness of today’s world. So it makes sense that the songs the Missouri singer and guitarist Justin Kinkel-Schuster performs as half of Water Liars seem pained — Kinkel-Schuster sings about the dark underbelly of sexual abandon, not to mention women who steal your wallet and break your heart. On last year’s full-length Phantom Limb, Kinkel-Schuster and drummer Andrew Bryant made lo-fi folk rock that didn’t attempt to hide its jagged edges. Tonight’s show features Kinkel-Schuster performing Water Liars tunes solo. Rounding out the bill is the amazing Arkansas singer and songwriter Adam Faucett, whose eerie vocals and elegant, biting guitar licks recall everyone from Cat Power to Skip Spence. —EDD HURT
