This summer Kasey Anderson – a longtime BLURT blogger,
incidentally; read some of his interviews with fellow artists right here – and his
band The Honkies will be hitting the road supporting Counting
Crows.  The Crows recently covered Kasey Anderson on their latest
release, Underwater Sunshine (Or
What We Did on Our Summer Vacation)
, doing “Like Teenage Gravity,”
from his 2010 release Nowhere Nights (Red
River Records).

 

Of the song, Counting Crows’ front man Adam Duritz wrote in
the album’s liner notes: “Ryan Spaulding raved about Kasey Anderson so I bought
all the records and I really dug them.  I really found out how right
Ryan was a few months later when Kasey came down to Austin last year to play
Smoke & Sand, Ryan’s Smashing Life & Tyrannosaurus Record’s 2011 SXSW
showcase.  His big lonely rock songs are addictive but he crushed at
Smoke & Sand with an acoustic set.  Maybe that’s why I chose
‘Like Teenage Gravity’ to cover over songs like ‘I Was A Photograph’ or ‘Exit
Ghost.’  I don’t know.  I love his recording.  It
has a sparse almost hymn-like simplicity.”

 

The Honkies: Kasey Anderson (vocals, guitar, percussion),
Andrew KcKeag (guitar, vocals), Eric Corson (bass), Ty Bailie (keys), and Mike
Musburger (drums).  They bring a wealth of a “who’s who” of
Northwest rock to their latest release, Heart of a Dog. McKeag has spent time in Presidents of the United
States of America and The Long Winters, Corson in The Long Winters and, of
course, Musburger from The Fastbacks, Young Fresh Fellows, The Posies, The
Supersuckers, and countless other cult Seattle power-pop and indie-rock bands.
