Drummer Jose Medeles (Breeders, Revival Drum Shop) is set to release an album meant as a drummer's tribute to guitarist John Fahey. The album is a series of guitar and drum duets, and the latest single off that album features Chris Funk of The Decemberists and Stephen Malkmus' band. "Golden" is an improvised instrumental song with Medeles and Funk playing together. It's an experimental sounding song that combines jazz with indie folk in a way that will appeal to those that prefer more odd, experimental music along with more mainstream listeners.
You can watch the video for "Golden" below. Railroad Cadences & Melancholic Anthems is due out May 20 on Jealous Butcher Records, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Jose Medeles, check out the artist's website.
