What an ear we've got for traveling minstrels, dashing, brooding gentlemen. They've got wanderlust in their wandering eyes, they pick the perfect chords, their voices hint at unshaven faces and secret smiles, their lyrics at sepia shaded images of an America forgotten, or maybe just imagined. If you can't get enough of that sort of thing, Vandaveer has just the dark folk brew for you. One look at his website verifies the visuals so apparent from his music: the ache for autumn, slouching unembarrassed in fingerless gloves, cool wind blowing dried leaves, the acrid taste of air no longer poised for summer slumber. Vandaveer sounds like a color, a velvet hue with which to paint your cracking country manor. Instead, it's the project of velvet-voiced Mark Charles Heidinger. Unlike the Williamsburg residents who think growing a beard, donning some crusty flannel, and chugging PBRs will make them sound like ambassadors of blue-collar Americana, Heidinger's actually the son of a preacher man, actually from Kentucky, and actually talented. Vandaveer's mysterious melodies, authentic sound, and lovely harmonies supplied by Emmylou Harris-sounding Rose Guerin have drawn the attention of the venerable La Blogotheque, who filmed him gracing a wedding party with spontaneous melody. Keep an eye out for his sophomore release, Divide and Conquer, coming at the end of August. In the meanwhile, check out the video for "Fistful of Swoon," after the jump. The Blogotheque shows are definitely more indicative of Vandaveer's easygoing personality, while in this video they're just kind of...awkwardly staring at you. But the song is rather wonderful.
