R. Stevie Moore readies ‘Afterlife’ LP ft. Ariel Pink & more (listen to “Irony”)
The great R. Stevie Moore is back with new album Afterlife, which will be out February 22 via Bar/None. While he's known as a DIY cult icon, master of the four-track and cassette-only release, Afterlife is one of his highest fi records to date. It was produced and compiled by longtime supporter and WFMU DJ Irwin Chusid (who oversees the estates of Sun Ra, Raymond Scott and others), and features appearances by Ariel Pink, Jason Falkner (with whom Moore made the great Make it Be), and Lane Steinberg, while Shimmy Disc's Kramer mastered the album. Moore takes well to this luxurious mid-fi world of sound, as you can hear on "Irony," which chimes like a Byrds song with a little mellow '70s vibe in there as well. The song premieres in this post and you can check that out, along with album art and tracklist, below.
