The third of his damning and devastating records, Drunk sees Vic Chesnutt making sparse, economical songs with little contributing to his often meandering but extremely punchy lyrics. His early works will come as a surprise to anyone indoctrinated in the ways of classics At the Cut and North Star Deserter, but Drunk proves that Chesnutt's often hopeless but often affirming songs survive in any style. Reissue comes with a lot of b-sides and a Radio Holland performance.
Here is a re-issue of Vic Chesnutt's 2005 album "Ghetto Bells" in which the Athens-based songwriter was joined by a veritable who's who of collaborators most notably jazz icon Bill Frisell and legendary multi instrumentalist Van Dyke Parks. It perfectly places Chesnutt's poetic delivery within a frame of gorgeously realised music.
U.S-born songwriter Vic Chesnutt's legacy is still very much alive and kicking. Silver Lake is one of the most impressive of his whopping 17-album-large repertoire. Initially released in 2003, the full-length perfectly encapsulates a witty vision of America in Chesnutt's pleasant indie-folk.
