A trip thru neon-lit alleys, full of pulp fiction juvey rock, sci-fi theme songs and greasy denim hipster jive. Effortlessly versatile and raucously dismissive of genre constraints, exciting and darkly romantic.
Plots a clear-eyed, sharp-elbowed course through such far-flung subjects as alternative hierarchies and astronomy, perpetual war for perpetual profit, the culture of detachment, middle age, fatherhood, fame, and the fleetingness of love.
Jerry David DeCicca is the frontman of beloved Columbus, Ohio folk-rock band The Black Swans. This is his debut solo album which features guest appearances by Will Oldham (Bonnie 'Prince' Billy), Kelley Deal (The Breeders), Spooner Oldham, and more.
The band toys with the theme of living beyond a normal lifetime- the concept of reliving and rewriting our lives, and the lessons we can all learn along the way, and marks a departure from their more stripped down style to one filled with lush instrumentation.
