January 3, 2017

The album I listened to the most last year was William Tyler’s Modern Country, largely because it became my new “working” companion, so Tyler’s tunes are very familiar at this point. I like what Tyler did with a small band on Modern Country (and I would love to see this band tour), although the essential setting is watching Tyler loop all of his different guitar lines through his series of pedals. I’m a sucker for effect pedals, and when I owned a guitar I owned more pedals than appropriate for a musician of my ability (I probably have a stray distortion pedal in a shoebox somewhere), so I was thrilled to watch the video below of Tyler discussing some of his pedals and techniques. 

I thought of this video as I listened to Modern Country for the first time in 2017 this morning. Between this album and a second cup of coffee, the day flew by.
