Richard Buckner fans rejoice! His highly anticipated new album Our Blood is available today on CD, LP, and digital download from your favorite local record stores and digital providers, as well as in the Merge store!
“Our Blood, Buckner’s third for Merge, is worth the wait. Urgent but elaborate, it’s a record that finds Buckner’s baritone as fluid and forceful as it’s ever been, backed by arrangements that strike the perfect balance between Spartan and swollen.” —IFC
“The nine songs here provide an excellent crash course in Buckner’s unlikely combination of gifts, most notably his ability to sound bone-tired and weather-beaten at the same time his songs shimmer agreeably. Even when it slows to a crawl, Our Blood is full of stealthy, subtle earworms—appropriate, given the stubborn resiliency of the immensely gifted artist who crafted them.” —NPR
Magnet Magazine has a series of posts written by Richard this week, as he acts as editor of the site. The link will be updated through out the week with some of Buckner's favorite things!
