Buddy Cage, Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley on New Richard Buckner Album
Singer/songwriter Richard Buckner has announced the release of his highly-anticipated new album Our Blood. The album features some notable guests, including longtime New Riders of the Purple Sage pedal steel player Buddy Cage and Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. The release is Buckner’s first since 2006’s Meadow and was inspired by a series of peculiar events including a run in with the law over a headless corpse found near Buckner’s home, a series of stolen recordings and other strange incidents. Our Blood is scheduled for release August 2 on Merge Records.
