This week’s [Free Music Friday] comes from one of Buffalo’s stranger exports, frenetic folkie Michael Ersing aka Yes Yes. Ersing will be in town tonight for a homecoming show. On tour with Yes Yes is lofi electronic project Alphabets out of Denver.
Also on the bill are local artists Kristachuwan and Aye Karou. Show takes place at the Hop on Hopkins Street in South Buffalo. Should be an interesting show.
Back in April when Cinnamon Aluminum came on the radio show, they played a very interesting track off a long-gestating collaborative album with Yes Yes that is now finally seeing the light of day.
Each of the songs on the album is a different improvised chant presented in very raw form without any sort of overdubbing or post-production. The result is a very intimate record of three dudes collectively riffing, while having an all around blast. Fans of Cinnamon Aluminum will also hear familiar melodies and lines that would later end up as full blown Cinnamon Aluminum songs. Good stuff indeed.
