William Tyler Live at Grimey's [Fresh Vids]

Posted By on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 at 10:19 AM

On Tuesday, guitar wizard William Tyler stopped in at Grimey's to celebrate the release of his new full-length, Impossible Truth, and I captured a few songs via my faithful Canon. Known as well for his contributions to Lambchop, Silver Jews and a host of others (including my belly, as co-proprietor of The Stone Fox), Tyler's a genial and self-effacing guy with as good a command of words as music, as you'll see in the introductions he gives to each song. As he mentioned in his conversation with Edd Hurt, Willy T. has branched out from the Fahey-inspired styles that marked 2010's Behold the Spirit, weaving some badass Middle Eastern and Indian flavors into the new tunes, especially in "The Geography of Nowhere," above. If Behold the Spirit was the soundtrack to your winter, Impossible Truth is perfectly timed for the start of spring. Tyler brought out three different guitars, so I posted a video featuring each. Find the record, Tyler's first for Merge, in your local shops now, and "Cadillac Desert" and "A Portrait of Sarah" after the jump.
