“[Jonathan Wilson] brings back idyllic, delicately shaded landscapes and atmospheres that
encourage the mind to wander.”—NPR
Downtown Records is set to release Jonathan Wilson’s Fanfare on October 15. In
anticipation of the release, Paste is premiering the album track “Love to Love” at
http://bit.ly/1dqkF6Z. Fanfare features vocal and instrumental contributions from Graham
Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty), Wilco’s
Patrick Sansone, and Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, as well as Mike Campbell and Benmont
Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Fanfare follows the success of Jonathan
Wilson’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut Gentle Spirit, which was hailed by SPIN as “intricately
produced and gently epic” and praised by Rolling Stone for its “gorgeously detailed folk-rock
ambles.” The Fanfare track “Dear Friend” is also available to be streamed and shared on
Soundcloud at http://bit.ly/1ckvXcA.
Jonathan Wilson recorded Fanfare with engineer Bryce Gonzales over a nine-month period at
Wilson’s Fivestar Studios in Echo Park. British folk legend Roy Harper co-wrote several of the
songs on the album, which also features Wilson’s regular band members, Richard Gowen
(drums), Dan Horne (bass), Omar Velasco (guitar) and Jason Borger (piano/organ). “There is
a high degree of musical prowess and pedigree here. Cross-generational musical sharing and
passing down traditions is very important to me and something that must continue,” Wilson says.
“This is the way you keep the fanfares blowing. This is how you keep the energies interacting.”
The band is set to perform at Newport Presents Way Over Yonder in Santa Monica on
October 6, The Chapel in San Francisco on November 1 and the Troubadour in West
Hollywood on November 7.
Born and raised in North Carolina and now based in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los
Angeles, Jonathan Wilson arrived in Laurel Canyon in 2005 and is credited with helping to
revive the neighborhood’s once-legendary music scene. As a sought-after producer, Wilson’s
recent work includes albums by Father John Misty and Dawes.
Allah-Las - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Allah-Las
Allah-Las met while working at the biggest of all the L.A. Record stores, but they became a band in an even more rare and special space—a California basement, dug out somewhere between the mountains and the beach. They began gigging shortly after their conception in and around Los Angeles in the later part of 2008. It wasn’t until three years later that they would find the proper environment to record their first single “Long Journey” which now bookends their self-titled release. These were the kind of songs that bounced between London and Los Angeles, the kind of thing that could have come from Mick Jagger or Arthur Lee or both at once, with crystalline guitar and slow-mo drums that recalled the way the waves take big bites of the beach at night. This was mystery music from the strange and ancient-modern California fringe, more Night Tide than Easy Rider. Allah-Las were a reflection of a reflection, an echo of an echo, a band that was psychedelic not because of reverb or shredding through pedals but for the simple way their songs seem to extend to infinity.
