Ryley Walker

Brett Naucke & Ryley Walker

Electronic producer Brett Naucke has teamed up Ryley Walker on a new EP called "I am Aware We Do Not Save One Another Very Often". These four tracks feature Walker on acoustic guitar gracefully balanced upon Naucke's atmospheric soundscapes.

Naucke's most recent album was released back in October via Make Noise and is called Electronic Hypnosis Program.

Charles Rumback & Ryley Walker

Thrill Jockey is preparing to released a collection of songs recorded over a two year span by the duo of drummer Charles Rumback and Ryley Walker. The album is called Little Common Twist and was produced by John Hughes.

These are meditative, almost ambient, creations that grow and develop with each listen. There are currently two tracks available, “Half Joking” and “Menebhi”, prior to the album’s release on November 8th.


Ryley Walker "Deafman Glance"

Ryley Walker is preparing to release his latest full-length album, Deafman Glance, on May 18th (Dead Oceans). The album features contributions from Cooper Cain (Bitchin’ Bajas, Cave), Bill Mackay, Brian J Sulpizo (Health&Beauty), Leroy Bach (Wilco, Five Style), Andrew Scott Young (Tiger Hatchery), Matt Lux, and others.

In a recent conversation with Laura Barton, Walker said this a more Chicago sounding record then his past two releases. In his words, "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. Everybody here’s always hustling….. This record is the sound of walking home late at night through Chicago in the middle of winter and being half-creeped out, scared someone’s going to punch you in the back of the head, and half in the most tranquil state you’ve been in all day, enjoying the quiet and this faint wind, and buses going by on all-night routes. That’s the sound to tune in to. That’s the sound of Chicago to me”. A love letter to Chicago, may be, may be not, but Walker shares what he has experienced on this album in a way he hasn’t before.
