Bill Orcutt – “A Natural Death”
It has been quite some time since Bill Orcutt released a solo acoustic album — a decade, in fact. In the interim he’s been on the header with everyone from longtime foil Chris Corsano to Sir Richard Bishop, Thurston Moore, Michael Morley, exploring the more electric corners of his oeuvre. On Jump On It, the vibe is oddly inviting, for an Orcutt record. Where many of his other releases are armored with noise, there’s a hushed ambience, a feeling of being in the room here, with each and every string squeak, breath, and chair creak adding to the performance. On “A Natural Death,” Orcutt winds the listener down a tender path, a solemn ode that feels like it’s worth it to get to that last reward. The new record arrives April 28th from Orcutt’s own Palilalia Records.
