Victor Villarreal releasing a new solo LP (stream it), playing “The Joan of Arc Gang”‘s Chicago residency
by Andrew Sacher
Victor Villarreal of Cap'n Jazz, Joan of Arc, Owls and other bands, will release a new solo album, Sleep Talk, the followup to 2012's Invisible Cinema, next week (2/3) via Joyful Noise (pre-order). Like his last album, it's mostly him and an acoustic guitar or a soft/clean electric guitar, but his dizzying fretwork is still as impressive as his work in the fuller-sounding bands he's in. A full stream of the album premieres in this post and can be listened to below.
His only solo date at the moment is in his hometown of Chicago on March 24 at The Hideout during "The Joan of Arc Gang"'s residency at the venue that also includes sets from Owen (playing Dinosaur Jr), Joan of Arc, Owls and more.
