Description

In the sunken lands of Arkansas along I-55, theres a road sign that directs you to a pair of tiny, hardscrabble towns in the Delta. It reads: Marie/Lepanto. Situated roughly between Southeast Missouri and Western Arkansas the two points where singer-songwriters Will Johnson and Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster grew up that dual appellation seemed a perfect handle for their new collaboration. Its especially fitting as their debut, Tenkiller, is an album permeated by a sense of place. For Johnson, the veteran singer-songwriter and longtime leader of Centro-matic, his union with Kinkel-Schuster, of Water Liars and Theodore, fits a pattern. In his work with South San Gabriel, Monsters of Folk, and Overseas, collaboration has long been the cornerstone of his creativity. Like his other endeavors, Marie/Lepanto was born out of a musical kinship and personal respect. The Austin-based Johnson and the Arkansas-based Kinkel-Schuster travelled to the Bluff City to record with Powell, resulting in the 10-track Tenkiller. The intimate sessions found Johnson and Kinkel-Schuster sharing writing, playing and vocal duties, yielding an album that falls in the great tradition of indie rock team ups from Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth to Vic Chesnutt and Lambchop, Peter Buck and Kevn Kinney to Kim Gordon and Lydia Lunch.
