Ezra Furman made a lasting impression when first joining us in 2016, with each set ripe with angst & abandenment (and saxophone) he struck a chord or two and was a obvious candidate for the invite back. In fact, many of you asked to make this happen so it should go without saying, it’s a real pleasure being able to have Ezra joining us again in 2018. New album, new band, new chapter.
The reviews of Ezra’s new release Transangelic Exodus will all point to the fact that you’re listening to a Chicago born, queer, jewish kid with a unique voice who’s taking the steps to follow traditions of other American songwriting greats. A student of that craft with a unique voice and perspective. Case in point – an entire album loosely based around supernatural queer lovers that are on the run from the law.
For additional weekend listening -> Ezra recently made the trip to Marc Maron’s garage and was a guest on the fantastic WTF Podcast, listen to that here.
