Trash Aesthetics presents RICHARD BUCKNER
+ guests Will Burns (Treecreeper) and Sacri Cuori
With Richard Buckner’s first London show in six years already sold out, we’ve responded to demand from fans, and decided to add another performance. This special event at The Social, is strictly limited to 60 tickets.
“A gruff yet honeyed voice so enveloping that it feels more like a place you go than a sound you hear… Buckner remains one of the most intriguing songwriters working” – Pitchfork 8.0 / 10
Despite sharing labels with the likes of ARCADE FIRE, DINOSAUR JR and RICHMOND FONTAINE, and boasting a back catalogue of albums with contributions from members of GIANT SAND/CALEXICO, YO LA TENGO, GUIDED BY VOICES, THE MEKONS, TORTOISE & SONIC YOUTH, Richard Buckner remains something of a cult treasure. It’s most likely because he’s the real deal; a classic troubadour in the mould of TOWNES VAN ZANDT, Buckner’s rustic poetry and dreamlike imagery is delivered by a voice that defines the sound of rural America.
“The Richard Buckner vibe– and that is a big influence for me. His words are just about a sound and barely about meaning, but I could find all these crazy meanings in there.. .there are lyrics that are totally heartbreaking and beautiful and heavy” – Justin Vernon of BON IVER
“An Austere Beauty” – UNCUT 4 stars
