taken from Julia Holter‘s new double A side 7″, the song was written by Burt Bacharach / Hal David; originally performed by Dionne Warwick), due out on August 19 (North America) / July 28th 2014 (Rest of the world).

‘Hold Fast’ is taken from the album “BLUE RIDER” by Zachary Cale. Released Sept. 24th, 2013. Electric Ragtime / All Hands Electric. Pre-Order LP/CD, HERE.


Musically Cale incorporates a highly syncopated rhythm in his playing blending the melodic Piedmont picking technique of Pre-War country blues players like Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Willie McTell with the two-step rhythm of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. “Wayward Son” and “Hold Fast” are great examples of this complex style. The songs were recorded by Matt Boynton (Kurt Vile, MGMT, Bat for Lashes) and are fleshed out with electric textures and analog synthesizers which lend a cosmic effect to the performances. This forward thinking approach to roots music is what Cale has been driving at since he started.  — All Hands Electric




Zachary Cale is a songwriter originally hailing from the small town of Enon, Louisiana.  His music ranges from lyrical folk balladry and American primitive inspired guitar instrumentals to experiments in popular song forms.  He is a co-founder of the record label All Hands Electric who has released records by an eclectic roster of bands such as Virginia Plain, Test House, The Gang Violets, Psychobuildings, Woodsy Pride, Plates of Cake, Peter’s House Music, Man Benu and Prudence Teacup.

OUTSIDE-JAZZ-COUNTRY!!

“This was what I was trying to do in 1980, get a jazz band to play country and western and get a record label to pay to record it and put it out. The closest I could get to that was Shockabilly and obviously that was a sidetrack. So listening to this is really gratifying! Let’s see if anybody else likes it!” – Dr. Eugene Chadbourne





Taken from the forthcoming release via Northern Spy Records, Bryan and the Haggards featuring Dr. Eugene Chadbourne “Merles Just Want To Have Fun” is due out October 29th.



Merles Just Wanna Have Fun is a ridiculous spirited, lovingly raucous tribute to one of country’s greats, Merle Haggard. As with Willie Nelson, there’s a bit of jazzy sensibility to Haggard’s music. The tunes aren’t mere three-chord rockers, giving a sextet of exceptional musicians like Bryan and the Haggards featuring Dr. Eugene Chadbourne plenty to work with. And as with Nelson (Poncho to his Lefty, or the other way around), Haggard’s songs are full of character, or rebels and patriots and world-weary travelers. — Northern Spy
