Our latest Guest Apartment session marks an interesting new era in the life and times of one James Husband
. Here, Husband stands on the cusp of a new adventure; that of a solo musician. Of course it's taken some time for Husband to arrive at this moment. You probably most likely know Husband from his ten plus years of work with the mighty Of Montreal (check out his work HERE
). But his recent trip to NYC to play the Polyvinyl CMJ Showcase marked his solo debut; a debut, I might add, that happened a few hours after his performance here. In a way, doesn't that make this segment Husband's actual premier? We think so...
During his stay, Husband played the multidimensional role of singer/songwriter/storyteller, spinning a slew of songs from his recently released album A Parallax I
(Polyvinyl) for your viewing pleasures. While performing skeletal versions of "A Grave In The Gravel", "While The Boys Went Down Under", and "Window", Husband's love of lo-fi pop recordings is what's most apparent. Like a spacier Bob Pollard, Husband pumps personality and inventive story lines into the songs; with great effective. Spend a little time with James Husband, in this, his solo debut (seriously, we're still sticking to it). - David Pitz
