Out Feb. 24th via Undertow. Pre-Order and listen to the full album HERE! “He describes the time spent writing the album as tumultuous and cathartic, a period where he reflected on his past and contemplated the future.“I’d rather not say that it was a dark time, but it was a difficult time in my life — among the most difficult,” he continued. “But I needed and need to try to let it go. And this is how I let things go. Though it’s the same for any album — this one probably more than the others.”
“Like its mastermind, The Tourist can get intense, even dark. But it also captures a sense of creative mischief — the sort of live-wire creativity that keeps music careers going longer than early skeptics could have imagined.” The Tourist is the fifth LP from CYHSY!
“You Became the Light” is Eric’s debut track off of his upcoming solo release Palisades out on April 21st on Egghunt Records. Eric reflects on his influence for the album being brought to him by “Meditation, death, self-help, dream therapy, tarot and mysticism.” Slick’s attempt in achieving “stillness” through meditation can be heard through the musical efforts of Palisades. This is a release you won’t want to miss! Head over to Paste here for a listen as well as Eric Slick’s upcoming solo dates.

“Per the track, “Predator,” Johnson told AD that he found “the disruptive, teetering lives of several characters (Tommy, Delilah and Rick) whirling around in (his) head. Good people doing bad things. The narrator desires some distance, but never for too long.” His fifth solo LP ‘Hatteras Night, A Good Luck Charm’ comes out next month! Listen to “Predator” HERE
“With the amazingly titled Wideass Highway, Poole has managed to bring a genre whose dismissal is so common it’s cliched — “anything but country” — into a contemporary space (see cosmic cowboy Sturgill Simpson for another recent-ish example of this feat). Poole’s warbling strings feel familiar, but his rickety production and pensive lyrics articulate a generational self-consciousness that lends the album a modern authenticity.” Listen to Wideass Highway HERE.
