co-written by Ryan Norris and Kurt Wagner.



“On April 29, William Tyler, a Nashville guitarist (Lambchop, Silver Jews) and composer, will release Lost Colony, the follow-up EP to his critically acclaimed 2013 release Impossible Truth. The limited-edition 12-inch features the new song “Whole New Dude,” a full-band reworking of “We Can’t Go Home Again” from Impossible Truth, and “Karussell,” a cover of a Michael Rother (Neu!) song.”

“The 12-inch was recorded and mixed by Joe Pisapia at Middletree Studios in Nashville in late 2013. The full band for this recording is William Tyler on guitar and keyboard; Reece Lazarus (bass guitar); Jamin Orrall (drums, percussion); and Luke Schneider (pedal steel guitar). In addition, the album’s front and back cover photography is the work of Tyler’s younger sister Elise.” –MERGE


「Whole New Dude」というタイトルは、ツアー中にM. C. テイラー(Hiss Golden Messenger)とジュリアン・ジェインズの『The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind:神々の沈黙-意識の誕生と文明の興亡』(1976著作、デヴィッド・ボウイが挙げるお気に入り100册のブックリストにも…)について話していた時に、ふと口をついて出てきたのだとか …。

“I was on tour with Wooden Wand and we were opening a West Coast tour for Swans. I had three books — Cadillac Desert, Ecology of Fear, and Hotel California — that I was juggling. They all had these themes of un-sustainability and illusion.” –William Tyler (via SPIN)

Listen another new song (rough mix) from the forthcoming second solo album “Oh No, I Love You” by Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), it was recorded with R. Stevie Moore.


“One of the tracks we had recorded was not running as smoothly as the others – a song called The Doors of Then. We’d tried it with a full band, stripped back and every which way. Apart from recording the album, the only other thing I’d wanted to do was meet up with R. Stevie Moore. I’d first heard his songs around five years ago and had spent most of the intervening time trying to listen to as many of the 400 albums that he’d made as possible. Me met over a takeout pizza and we got on like a trailer park on fire. I told him about The Doors of Then and the next day we recorded it with R. Stevie playing everything except the drums. It sounded exactly as I’d wanted it to.”
