Hellooo, Zeeba NeighbaSep 05, 2019
It's a dubious honor, but I've managed to live in several of the more hipster-approved neighborhoods during my nineteen years in Austin. At one of those addresses, I had Steve James for a neighbor. If you don't know Steve's work, he made a string of records in the late '90s and early 2000's that are really worth checking out. I'm particularly partial to American Primitive, although if you want your guitar-picking mind blown as quickly as possible, go straight to the title track from 2003's Fast Texas. No, I'm not sure exactly how he sings while playing that riff either, which I imagine is somewhat the point of the whole exercise.
