Alt-country singer/songwriter Richard Buckner returned with a new album, Surrounded, which came out this past September via Merge. It's a somber album, with thick, haunting atmospheres, and some rich vocal harmonies that add a comforting warmth to the whole thing too. You can stream two of its tracks, "When You Tell Me How It Is" and "Mood," below, and listen to the full album on the Merge jukebox.
Richard has some dates coming up this year too. They're a little scattered at the moment so maybe more will be announced, but we at least know that he'll be in NYC for a show on November 17 at Mercury Lounge with Vandaveer. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/11) at noon with an AmEx presale starting today (10/9) at noon.
All dates are listed, along with the song streams, below...
