Artist: Tom Dyer

Release: I Ain't Blue Anymore

Label: Green Monkey Records

Release date: Out now

The latest from Seattle's Tom Dyer is a twisted Americana adventure, a Waits-ian take on the blues, particularly in the arrangements and instrumental experimentation with things like the bulbul tarang, charango and melodica. Dyer's baritone voice holds the whole thing together, preaching a gravelly sermon like Leonard Cohen high on Captain Beefheart, whose "Smithsonian Institute Blues (Or the Big Dig)" appears on the LP alongside a Sonics cover. You can check out a video from Tom Dyer after the jump.
