Fink Talks "Sunday Night Blues Club Vol 1"
Fri, 10 Mar 2017 08:56:23
Fink is an artist who fails to sit in genre. His career has spanned a creative output of albums that have touched on, and been informed by, everything from soul and acid house to more orchestral expressions, like "Yesterday Was Hard On All Of US" as used in the Selma soundtrack. His latest album once again shifts gear and arrives as a modern blues volume inspired by his love of artists like John Lee Hooker, T-Bone Walker, and Chuck Berry.
Recorded in one day at his Berlin studio and co-produced with Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Warpaint). Each track was recorded fast, live, and mostly in one take using one vintage mic and one vintage amp. Fink's Sunday Night Blues Club Vol. 1 is an album that explores passions as much as proficiency, and pride as much as failure. It's a wonderful set of tunes that sets the tone for contemporary blues — living the genre rather than sharing memories of what once was.
ARTISTdirect caught up with Fink to discuss the album, the process behind capturing the sessions, and to get a little insight into his life in new hometown, Berlin.
