That record comes out July 21st on Thrill Jockey.
On Sunday, June 14th, Matthew Friedberger and Fiery Furnaces drummer Bob D’Amico will perform with King’s Crescent at a Northside Festival show at Spike Hill. The lineup for that gig, curated by Martin Bisi, also includes SUSU, Kerry Kennedy, Alina Simone and Bisi himself.
On King’s Crescent, Amico wrote in March…
i have another sorta-new band with my good friends jeff steinhauser on guitar, jeff martini on bass/vox, matt friedberger on organ and me on drums. the band is called Kings Crescent. right now we’re playing mostly the music of our funk heroes from New Orleans- The Meters. we will expand our repotoire a bit and incorporate some of our other soul/funk heroes as well….and some Minutemen jams played in the vein of those heroes.
