Ryley Walker Announces New Album

Illinois Indie rocker, Ryley Walker, announced his next album Deafman Glance, will be out May 18th, on Dead Oceans. Accompanying the album announcement was the single “Telluride Speed.”

 

Walker said in a press release that the album and its sounds come from a Chicago place of mind:

I just wanted to make something weird and far-out that came from the heart finally. I was always trying to make something like this I guess, trying to catch up with my imagination. And I think I succeeded in that way — it’s got some weird instrumentation on there, and some surreal far-out words. And it’s more Chicago-y sounding. Chicago sounds like a train constantly coming towards you but never arriving. That’s the sound I hear, all the time, ringing in my ears.”

Walker will be on tour with Calexico; a tour which starts for Walker with a residency at Cafe Mustache in Chicago, IL, in March.
