American Music Club
Mercury

Reissue of the sixth studio album from San Francisco-based indie outfit American Music Club. This was their first release on a major label and was widely critically acclaimed (although not as revered as its predecessor, the seminal Everclear). However, it received little airplay and failed to chart. The following year's release, San Francisco, would be the band's last album until they were to reform 10 years later.

Mark Eitzel
Hey Mr Ferryman

Once called ‘America’s greatest living lyricist’ by The Guardian, Mark Eitzel certainly knows his way around metaphor and allegory. The ferryman, in question, is quite probably the same Charon that Nick Cave grappled with on The Boatman’s Call. However, Eitzel is far wryer than Cave - on the title track he sings ‘Hey Mr. ferryman, do you party where you’re from?’ - and the sonic and lyrical approach to matters of life and death has more in common with Eels. Vinyl comes with an indies-only bonus CD, which is cool.

American Music Club
San Francisco

Originally released in 1994, San Francisco was American Music Club’s seventh and ostensibly final album until Love Songs For Patriots was released in 2004. Typically, Mark Eitzel’s songs switch between the confessional and stark to the poppier, melodic numbers. San Francisco is available on 180g vinyl LP with printed lyric sheet.
