Songwriter Rayland Baxter is a dreamer, a very fine one, as a matter of fact. He is one of a misty-eyed gentlefolk seeking prosperity in a soul, in the soul. He’s a wanderer of the highest regard, with hazy matter, loosely based on his waking hours, conditions, remarks and interactions, all that he finds suitable to chronicle in his ledger and diary. He made a record entitled “Feathers & Fishhooks,” three years ago and the men, or man, that he introduced us to were of the fluttery variety. They found that they were utterly consumed by their wanderings, by the ifs, the white noise and the unseen phantoms whispering it all breathy and hot into their ears.
Mechanical River is the moniker for Charleston, South Carolina native Joel Hamilton’s most recent musical project – a lo-fi folk masterpiece constructed with fuzzed out, crooning vocals, crunchy acoustic guitar arrangements, and drum machine percussion. In the spirit of true DIY, Hamilton plays every instrument on his debut album, ‘Astral Castle’, which he also recorded and produced himself. Tracks for the album were then mixed at Electric Lady Studios by Ben Baptie (Beck, Haim) and completed by famed mastering engineer Tom Coyne (Adele, Taylor Swift). Songs “Pomelos” and “I Need Love” are already seeing much attention (and rotation) from tastemakers at KEXP in Seattle and other online channels.
