What people are saying about the new album…

Our Blood, with its tattered, frayed grace, reflects Buckner‘s compellingly listenable, weary yet stubborn poetic journey, for answers to questions — both past and and present, elliptical and enormous –that lie just beyond his grasp.”  – Allmusic.com

 

“Wasted-night rhapsodies that demand you lean in close.”  – SPIN.com

 

“The most concise, driven, and well-considered Buckner album in the last decade.”  – Pitchfork.com

 

“Buckner’s latter day understatement is refreshing in its candor and simplicity.”  – Pastemagazine.com

Our Blood, right around the corner

“Our Blood” has been licensed for distribution in Europe, Australia and New Zealand on Decor Records. That version will feature three bonus tracks, some of us may just order the import version huh? Also if you pre-order Our Blood on iTunes it will feature a bonus song “Willow” which I has posted earlier in the year (see below) as “Remember.”

You can currently stream “Our Blood” at npr.org…

Autographed copies of “Our Blood” avalaible for pre-sale at Bull Moose

http://www.bullmoose.com/rel/v2_home.php?storenr=258&deptnr=209

“Order now to reserve an autographed copy of Richard Buckner’s new CD OUR BLOOD for only $8.97. Quantities are VERY limited.
Richard Buckner is one of our heroes. Though he may never sell a gazillion records, his many admirers are as devoted as any Bruce, Neil, or Lupe enthusiast.”


Note: This was sent to me in an email from someone at Bull Moose. I put it up here for the sake of those who live in places off the beaten path and don’t get many touring musicians coming through their town. If you go to a Richard Buckner show, I bet he would sign your album for you.

RichardBuckner.com – official site relaunched!!!

It is my pleasure to tell you fine folks that http://www.richardbuckner.com is back!!

After a couple long years of being redirected to Merge Records’ Richard Buckner artist profile, you will be pleasantly surprised find a few good things going on at Buckner’s “offical website.” Stream songs from the new album “Our Blood” and read the little piece he wrote last month about the making of “Our Blood.” Welcome back Buck!
