Itasca, Dylan Golden Aycock & Lake Mary — In-Store Performance
Wednesday, September 6th - 8 pm

ITASCA (Los Angeles) - is the musical identity of Los Angeles-based guitarist, singer, and songwriter Kayla Cohen. Just as the name itself is ambiguous—a 19th-century pseudo-Ojibwe place name and portmanteau of the Latin words for “truth” (veritas) and “head” (caput)—so too is Cohen’s musical project mutable and multivalent: fundamentally unconcerned with genre, but richly allusive of the hermetic worlds of private-press canyon-cult mystics and East Coast noiseniks alike. Though deeply informed by the mythology and iconography of the modern American desert West, Cohen likewise finds kinship with a lineage of English iconoclasts such as Michael Chapman and Bridget St John. Her adept fingerstyle guitar work—nimble but unshowy, always at the service of framing her plaintively unspooling modal progressions and gorgeous, moonlit voice—centers Itasca’s melancholy pastorales in a hazy, heat-mirage space equally suggestive of familiarity and distance.

Lake Mary - aka Chaz Prymek, of Columbia, MO, hasn’t been as much a regular in our personal orbit as his East Coast-based peers, but this relatively rare treat of a show made up for it. A recent show at the Schoolhouse, a low-key, living-room style DIY venue in Bushwick, provided the perfect intimate setting for Prymek’s talents. The fingerstyle guitarist played a total of four compositions, including an as-yet-unnamed new number. The opener of “Everything the Light Touched,” with Prymek accompanied on accordion, proved the perfect, ethereal kickoff to the night. Prymek’s style has a welcoming, unforced quality to it that suggests that he is more interested in communicating the emotions in his music than his ability to play guitar. It’s the type of experience that sticks with you, even if it’s your first time seeing him; he leaves a warmth behind. So if you find Lake Mary in your town, make sure to make the trip to see him.

"Dylan Golden Aycock's lineage is clear: the fingerpicked blues of John Fahey, the swirling compositions of Robbie Basho and the outward-looking Americana of Jim O'Rourke's Bad Timing and The Visitor. That's not a bad crossroads to meet your demons at, especially when so much of what we call American Primitive now is in a state of transformation. Church Of Level Track kicks up dream dust in a positively lush collection of cosmic rags, ambient country tunes and steel-string ragas." - NPR
