Walking Man w/Good Buddy, Chrome Pony & All Them Witches
Walking Man isn’t easy to peg, but that’s good news for us. The duo references obscure folklore and the back alleys of the soul where superstition is made flesh in the fires of belief. Oh, and gentle giant James Taylor too. They display a deep affinity for the blues and its antecedents — field hollers, work songs and fife-and-drum music virtually ignored by the general public until canonized by Moses Asch and the Lomaxes — then blend them elegantly with African-inspired polyrhythmic electronic grooves, as in “Maybel,” the opening cut from their new EP. A perfect left-field pairing comes courtesy of All Them Witches, whose 2012 debut Our Mother Electricity covers the stoner-psych map from the Delta to the desert and back, delivering thick riffs alongside nimble slide guitar and piano runs that call down the banshees. In their second outing this week, Black Tooth Records’ electro-psych garage-blasters Chrome Pony open the evening’s festivities.
