John Vanderslice: New Album, Independent in October

San Francisco resident local musician, producer, studio owner, and all around nice-guy John Vanderslice has just released a new album, and is mounting a fall tour around the new disc. As he is wont to do, Vanderslice will be wrapping up the tour on October 20th at the Independent. The new album is pretty by-the-books John Vanderslice: articulate lyrics, meticulously sculpted sound, and highly deliberate melodies. That is to say, if you like old JV, you'll like this. If not.....well, hrm - we didn't really want to talk to you anyway. Vanderslice puts on notoriously good shows for his hometown, so this looks like a good bet to us. See you there.
