Ryley Walker

Psych folk singer Ryley Walker won us over when he came to NYC earlier this year to open for Cloud Nothings. Not only are his guitar skills impeccable, but he's super funny between songs and got the whole crowd loving him. He's back for CMJ this week and has a few shows scheduled:

10/22 Baby's All Right (day show) w/ Girlpool, Caveman, Wampire, Splashh, Celestial Shore, Icewater, White Reaper, J Ferndanez, Ronald Paris, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Tonstartssbandht, Sunflower Bean, Ultimate Painting

10/24 Aquarium Drunkard showcase at Rough Trade (night show) w/ Kevin Morby (full band), Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band, Twin Peaks, Springtime Carnivore, Modern Vices, Geronimo Getty

10/25 Bowery Presents Day Party at Pianos w/ Water Liars, Springtime Carnivore, The Wytches, Spookyland, Little May

The two day shows are both free and tickets are on sale now for the Rough Trade show.

Ryley put out his newest album, All Kinds of You, earlier this year. Stream that in its entirety along with a just-released cover he did of Amen Dunes (who play their own CMJ show at Trans Pecos on on 10/24), with his full list of tour dates, below...
