Arbouretum

Mopey Americana singer-songwriter Dave Heumann is cut from roughly the same cloth as Bonnie "Prince" Billy, who he's backed from time to time as a guitarist. Other acts appearing here include psychedelic rockers Pontiak, Bonnie's younger brother and erstwhile Hook writer Ned Oldham, and former Titus Andronicus guitarist Andrew Cedermark, who, despite being the music writer at a certain competing publication, wins further points here on top of the recent acclaim in our annual music issue for a) yet another Pitchfork nod on what is easily his strongest song yet (seriously, go check it out, that intro will crush you) and b) having decided to name his backing band "Buffalo Wildwing."
