Zachary Cale: Duskland
Zachary Cale has been self-releasing music under his own name for just shy of a decade. Duskland, his latest album and first for a label, is a work of craftsmanship full of mysticism and elegance; a collection of songs that look directly into the face of darkness yet drive beyond it. Taking cues from Oh Mercy/Time Out of Mind era Dylan and Nick Cave's work with the Bad Seeds, the record evokes a restless spirit, one that is informed by American myths and tall tales. Aquarium Drunkard have said of Cale's music "[it] casts a captivating spell" while the Village Voice recently named him "the best songwriter in New York City".
