Product Description

Ken Stringfellow - musician, songwriter, producer, arranger - has been part of the indie landscape since the debut of his acclaimed band The Posies in 1988. Hailing from the musical hotbed of Seattle at the time when that music scene exploded into national prominence, The Posies went on to sign with Geffen Records and released brilliant, successful albums such as 1993 s legendary "Frosting on the Beater". The band is still active today, having released their seventh album, "Blood/Candy" in 2010...an album heaped with critical praise in the UK press...The Word magazine devoted two pages to a review which called it "a finely calibrated... dazzling tapestry... just stupidly good". In addition to his groundbreaking work with the Posies, Ken was part of rock legends Big Star, one of the most acclaimed and legendary groups of all time, from 1993 until the death of Alex Chilton in 2010. Ken played bass, sang and helped create the band s 2005 album "In Space", their first since 1978 s timeless "Third/Sister Lovers". He s still frequently called upon to perform, speak about, and celebrate the music of one of the cornerstones of indie rock. Ken also spent ten years on the road and in studio with R.E.M., appearing on two albums (2001 s "Reveal" and 2004 s "Around the Sun"), and propelling the band on keyboards, bass, guitar and accordion during headlining slots at Glastonbury, Rock In Rio, Rock Am Ring, etc as well as on TV shows such as Top of the Pops, Saturday Night Live, Later With Jools Holland and countless others. The list of collaborations goes on: guitarist in punk legends Lagwagon; producer/engineer on albums for Damien Jurado, the Long Winters, China s Hanggai, and dozens more; onstage and on-album appearances with Snow Patrol (keyboards on their landmark "Eyes Open" album), Neil Young, Patti Smith, Mudhoney, Death Cab For Cutie...to list all his work over the years would add up to hundreds of albums and thousands of live appearances. Then there s his solo work - a scant three albums over the last two decades (1997 s "This Sounds Like Goodbye", 2001 s "Touched", and 2004 s "Soft Commands"), all garnering high praise in Pitchfork, Mojo, NME and other incontrovertible indie rock media. The albums mix Ken s deeply expressed, emotional singing with delicate support: acoustic, electric, electronic, chamber - Stringfellow is adept at many styles. His shows are legendary, pushing minimalism to its core definition, often performing without using the house PA, Ken s voice soars, cries, leaps from barely audible to room-filling anguish, joy, sorrow and humor. Ken s live show has been raved about in packed audiences from Lithuania to Lima, from Taipei to Tasmania, from Johannesburg to Trinidad. Ken is set release his fourth album, "Danzig in the Moonlight" October 1st on Lojinx in Europe. The album was recorded at the legendary ICP Studios in Brussels, and mixed by up and coming production team TheLAB in Los Angeles. Ken also received contributions from musicians in Mumbai, Italy, Seattle and more; On the CD version of the album, Charity Rose Thielen of The Head & The Heart joins him on "Doesn't It Remind You of Something" sounding like something Lee Hazelwood might have co-written with Leonard Cohen. On the vinyl LP the song is instead sung with Margaret Cho. The album has moments of fearsome electro-tinged menace, balanced with some of the most intensely intimate fragility you're likely to encounter on record. Like Stringfellow's lifestyle it is multi-national, genre-defying, challenging and deeply musical. Ken will tour Europe throughout autumn in support of the album. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

I'm not sure which album the other reviewer has been listening to, but this is a great set by Ken Stringfellow. Jesus was an Only Child is an epic opening track and there is no let up in standard throughout. This is my first review on Amazon, but I couldn't sit by and let the two star review put potential listeners off... Buy it!

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Philip E. S. Price on 9 Jan. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This album is a fantastic example of an ageing musician who has a critically acclaimed (rightly so) back catalogue and track record - who has obviously ran out of money, source material and inspiration. Because the end result sounds like a lazy, albeit beautifully produced, lack-lustre collection of throw-away songs. They failed to engage me at all. I am a huge Posies fan, having seen them perform live two or three times in their hey-day. Sorry, but I have to warn people from buying this based upon what you might expect - hugely disappointing effort (effort - doesn't sound like much went into it!!). Avoid at all costs.

Longtime Favorite is back with a vengeance! 5 Jan. 2013
By M. Parks - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Ken, Posies, Big Star since the early nineties. It is so gratifying to see his evolution over the years with various bands, solo work and production projects.
This album is fantastic, his usual inventive writing and his voice is still in fine form after all these years.

If you are a fan of any of his previous bands, give this a listen, it's worth the price of admission and then some!
Posies vibe, but more mature, more varied 18 May 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I think most Posies fans will enjoy this solo album by Stringfellow, the former Posies mainstay. That said, this album goes far beyond the power-pop stylings of the Posies. Dare I say, it's more mature and more varied than the stuff he was doing with that band, and I also think it sounds better! Yes, those are bold words, especially considering how devoted many Posies fans are to the band, but the melodic songs on this album are very strong, and I really like the way that Stringfellow mixes genres to create a sound that's not so easy to pigeonhole.

There are some truly tuneful gems on here, things that range from pop-rock to a sound that harkens towards current Americana (his duet with Charity Rose Theilen, "Doesn't It Remind You of Something," is wonderful, as is the album's closing a track, "You're a Sign," another duet with an uncredited female vocalist), and a few tunes with subtle electronic flourishes garnishing them. Another highlight is "Pray," a delicious soul tune that has a retro 1970s Memphis vibe, sounding like it was produced by Willie Mitchell for Hi Records. I keep waiting for Al Green to sing harmony. It's that well done.

I don't know what it is about these ex-Posies guys and their solo albums, but they are remarkable creations. I also thought Jon Auer's "Songs from the Year of our Demise" was outstanding. Even if you aren't a Posies fan, but enjoy honest, heartfelt "alternative" rock music (for lack of a better term) this is an album you should check out. Very, very impressive set of songs.

Wow! Went to see an in store performance here in Raleigh, NC and loved the songs Mr Stringfellow played. I left after the meet and greet and spoke with the artist about my appreciation for his music and past work with the Posies. So I pull out of Schoolkid's parking lot and start listening to this CD and quite frankly it is awesome, there's rock-n-roll, R&B, and other stuff too, all with the expected humorous, intelligent wordplay.

This is definitely going to stay in my car with Dear 23, Frosting on the Beaster, Failure, Success, Amazing Disgrace, etc........and my Big Star cds!
Great job Ken and i look forward to your next ... 5 Jan. 2015
