May Residency & LCG’s ’60 Grit’

Adam Klein & The Wild Fires are in residency every Wednesday night in May @ one of our favorite spots, Hendershot’s Coffee in Athens. Each week they’ll perform a different Adam Klein album with special guests. Info on flyer below, and check the Tour Dates page for Wild Fires dates around the southeast this month (GA, TN, NC, SC).

They’ll be in the studio next weekend working up some analogue magic for an upcoming 7″ vinyl release. We’re pumped.

In the meantime, the lovely Little Country Giants are putting on the finishing touches to their latest record, 60 Grit, and will be touring its release the next few months. Details to come. Go say hi here and here.

“Dugu Wolo” heats up..

Some great press has begun trickling in this past month about Lassine Kouyate (Adam Klein)‘s latest release, the rustic acoustic Malian Mande record, Dugu Wolo.

Check out Flagpole Magazine’s article & CD review (“damn good”), along with fine write-ups on SoundRoots (“a bridge between two worlds”), UK’s Flyin Shoes (“A remarkably soulful record, leaving a warm glow in its wake… there is a sublime beauty to the interplay of instruments.. a rather beautiful piece of work.”), and Inside World Music (“Anyone interested in the guitar and blues sounds of Boubacar Traore, Lobi Traore, Ali Farka Toure, Salif Keita, and Toumani Diabate, among others, will find joy and solace in this amazing collection of songs”).

Klein and his band, The Wild Fires, along with ace Athens percussionists Sunny Ortiz (Widespread Panic) and Jim Wilson (Don Chambers & Goat, Madeline) performed songs from Dugu Wolo at the famed Georgia Theatre last night, opening for Mande rock/jam fusion act Toubab Krewe. Look for photos & videos on Adam’s facebook page.
