Keeled Scales presents Julia Lucille with Moses Nesh 8:30pm Moses Nesh (on tour from Atlanta, GA) "Moses Nesh is Atlanta's Bluesman Extraordinaire. He's only in his 20's, but his passion for and knowledge of old blues pressed on 78's, plus his outstanding guitar skills combine for something far beyond expectations. Moses picks and pulls steel strings and sings hardly intelligible lyrics in his slurred, reedy and captivating voice. His new album "No Labor-Saving Machine" comes out April 21 via Keeled Scales. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zN3tJgkkm3s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnP3mSL-n60 9:15 Julia Lucille Julia Lucille released her new album "Chthonic" via Keeled Scales on April 7. The Austin Chronicle gave it 4 stars-- "Literal translation of chthonic is "subterranean," but its use in Greek deals with sacrifices made to deities in the looming underworld. A fitting title for Julia Lucille's dark, otherworldly album, which sounds like it hangs in the balance between life and what comes after, both aching and hopeful. Nine tracks of feminine, swaying, and sometimes ambient folk imbued with some gentle reverb, Chthonic navigates easily from the straightforward (albeit foreboding) "Ariadne" and pedal-steel twang on the forlorn "I Don't Think I Can" to the eeriness of opener "Eternally" and sleepy, sanguine closer "Let's Climb up on the Car." The local singer's music is as much a visual and tactile experience as it is an auditory one. Its airy atmospherics conjure the pale light of early evening, wide open sky, country fields, misty bayous, and the smell of lavender, all fleshed out by layers of Lucille's dreamy, delicate vocals." https://keeledscales.bandcamp.com/album/chthonic "Darkening" music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKPpKyYR8R4&feature=youtu.be $8 adv ticket $10 at door doors @ 8pm (poster by Jordan Moser)
