Barton Carroll will release his latest opus (his fifth) October 15th on Skybucket Records with upcoming tour including a stop in Birmingham.
"Together You and I (previous record) recounts characters trying desperately to turn chance meetings and petty hook-ups into something longer and more meaningful. "Do you want to get out of here?" he asks an unidentified woman on a song with the same title. "I don't need to finish my beer." No one ever finishes their beer on Together You and I, and it's to his considerable credit that Carroll makes clear that many of these denizens come to regret leaving that glass half emptied."-
Pitchfork (7.4 out of 10)
Birmingham's own Cutters return to the stage with labelmate Carroll.
If there were voices from the past who came into your present night through dreams to tell you of your fate tomorrow, they would sing. They would be backed by fiddle, drums, bass, pianos and guitars. They would be woeful, they would be hopeful. They would be cryptic, they would be careful. They would laugh and they would cry.
Delicate Cutters is an effort of exorcising demons, of laments and of fond rememberances. Folksy, romantic songs spun in self-examination and self-deprecating humor range from haunting and passionate to engaging, southern literary story-telling.
