New Discovery: Matt Bauer - Jessamine County Book of the Living

Matt and I are neighbors (he's from Kentucky - although he apparently is currently a resident of Brooklyn), but I've only recently discovered his music. It's absolutely stunning orchestral folk music and his voice is reminiscent, to me, of Richard Buckner's.

Here's a video for "TICS 1979":

TICS 1979 by Matt Bauer from matt bauer on Vimeo.

And you can download the song "Black Horses" here.

And here's a link to hear and download some live stuff from appearances on WFMU in NYC.

Highly recommended for fans of Buckner, Tom Waits, Gillian Welch, Papa M... the kind of artists with the talent get a rock feel out of acoustic instrumentation and a measured pace.
