Quarantined in the sleepy San Pedro neighborhood of Vinegar Hill, on the same harbor-adjacent street where Charles Bukowski lived out his final years, David-Ivar Herman Dune, visual artist and founding anchor of French antifolk stalwarts Herman Dune, turned those Covid-induced anxieties inward and emerged from his home studio with the new full-length LP Notes From Vinegar Hill. There?s something for everyone on this record - folksy rockers, Bakersfield twang, Big Pink-style Americana, 70s AM Gold, and rough-hewn Cold Turkey guitar stomps. The songs speak of the suffocating claustrophobia of isolation and fear, the anguish of being an immigrant in a country where policies harden by the moment, but also of the beauty of California, the ocean, and a quiet life with three black cats that turned the heart of a Scorpio toward felines. This album is dedicated to David Berman. Personnel: David Ivar: Voice, Piano, Guitars, Upright Bass, Drums, Percussions, Whistles and Harmonica Caitlin Rose: Vocals and Duet on Vinegar Hill Mayon: Vocals Spencer Cullum III: Pedal Steel Jon Natchez: Horns on Say You Love Me Too. Uncut - 8/10 review December 2020 - "wry, yet heartfelt and admirably understated country-folk songs".
