life aint fair – we all know that, and in fact it can be a downright son of a bitch from time to time, but we all keep trucking along. hey it beats the alternative, i suppose. i can only assume that no one knows about life’s uncertainties than richard buckner, who i consider to be my generations greatest contribution to music. sure i could argue that there are others that have added more to the musical landscape on a larger scale, but in terms of sheer body of work i would be hard pressed to name an artist’s catalogue that surpasses richards. with all that said here is a merge blog post, by richard, that pretty much is depressing as hell, at least to me. thanks to jason for bringing this to my attention…

in other, more uplifting, richard news, merge will be digitally re-issuing three of his out of print works; impasse, the hill and on 3.10 via the merge store.

for the love of christ, if you havent listened to him before, now’s your chance…

      if you know anything about me, you then know my love for hallelujah the hills knows no bounds. both have ever done something evil and no one knows what happens next were my favorite records from 2014 and 2012, respectively. without a doubt they are one of the greatest bands currently making music. “devil level […]

      February 21, 2015
