Indie folkster Paleo – aka David Strackany – has his new
album Fruit Of The Spirit out
on June 21 via Partisan. He’s just released the first single and video, “Holly
Would,” and you can check out the latter, directed and animated by Jonathan
Burns, right here.

Here’s the story on the album: “Holing up in Davenport, Iowa,
Paleo got taught the ropes of analogue recording from the original Daytrotter
engineer, Patrick Stolley. Stolley’s place is a minefield of old analogue gear,
a phalanx of synths and amps insulate the walls, piles of grease-thirsty old
tape machines, bells, whistles, six-strings, four-strings, twelve-strings, no
strings. Paleo then decided to try something which’d never occurred to him
before: collaboration. Friends strode in from around the region – Chicago, Minneapolis, Iowa City, Rock Island,
and Lawrence –
and with next to no rehearsal and no lead sheets, they huddled for a three-day
creative blitzkrieg. Electrofolk artist Cloud Dog lends samples and howls in
the background, the bastard folkies from Minnesota
add their sad, quirk-pop sensibility, and a revolving door of drummers and
percussionists take turns on the kit. Strackany just let the tape roll, and
together they bottled a mischievous, mercurial record sparking with
imperfection: the bruised, sweet, and colorful Fruit Of The Spirit.”
