End of the Year Accolades

Been meaning to update this for a while, things got a little crazy over the holidays… all good things though! Lots of press for ‘Blue Rider’ came in right at the end. Here’s a little run down…

Blue Rider

Wow what a week! My new record Blue Rider has been out since Tuesday and already the reviews have been rolling in. Thanks to everyone that’s ordered the record, they should arriving at your doorstep no later than tomorrow. Also thanks to everyone that made the record release show at Union Pool such a success. It was a great night!

Pitchfork track review!

Pitchfork premiered my song “Wayward Son” last week. It sure was a nice thing to wake up to. Thanks to everyone for playing and sharing it! I just approved the test pressings, so Pre-Orders will be up as early as next week! Save the date: September 24th is Blue Rider release day!

Down the Highway: Crystal Stilts Tour!

I’m beyond psyched to announce I’ll be hitting the road this October with my good pals CRYSTAL STILTS! I’ll be supporting them for all of their US dates starting October 7th. Not only that but I’ll be the unofficial 6th member of CS as I’ll be playing lead guitar with them!

May Flowers: Live at The Spotty Dog w/ Sondra Sun Odeon

Now that Spring is here I’m starting to get the touring bug. Been holed up at the All Hands House rehearsing new material with The Rain Band as of late, and think we’re ready to show you some bright new things. Tomorrow I’ll be heading north for a show in the beautiful town of Hudson, NY. Sharing the bill with the amazing Sondra Sun-Odeon at The Spotty Dog.

Live from the Ore Mountains Bootleg

Hello out there!  Zachary Cale here writing from the wintery white skies of Gotham.  Gonna interrupt my holiday hibernation with a little news item.  While on my recent European tour I stopped over in the Ore Mountains in the East German town of Schwarzenberg.  I had a day off originally but at the last minute my good friend Marcus Obst organized a concert at The Galerie Rademann.  It was late October (not even Halloween yet) but it was already snowing in the mountains.  The performance took place in a small room situated in the storefront of the gallery.  I proceeded to play a two hour set (21 songs) to the 30 or so locals packed in there.  Marcus captured the whole thing (warts and all) on a small hand held digital recorder.  You’ll have to forgive the fidelity of the recording, it is quite primitive, but I think it’s a nice document of my solo show for that tour.  On it you’ll find songs spanning throughout all my records (including the Illuminations LP) as well as a couple new and unreleased tunes. You can download the entire set in your choice of FLAC or high quality MP3 from the Dying […]
