ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From out of the South Carolina swamps comes folk artist and home recording legend Charlie McAlister. Charlie’s unique brand of homemade lo-fi Psycho Dixie music, released on innumerable self-produced cassettes, has inspired hordes of 4-track enthusiasts since his debut in the mid 80’s. With banjo, toy drums, broken guitars, TV samples and kitchenware, McAlister delivers instantly-catchy songs and sound collage that fall somewhere between Woody Guthrie and Andre Breton. Finally, the bizarre, yet charming work of this crazed backwoods genius is available on CD Baby.

Poppin' Grapevine is as close to the complete Charlie experience as you're likely to find on one CD. Infectuous folk songs, sound collage, spoken word performances and other indescribable McAlister sounds. All tracks are unique to this collection, a full 72 minutes of music. Includes a lengthy radio broadcast of original stories, performed by Charlie over the phone in 2005. A strong contender for his best album. (I recommend listening to this one late at night, through headphones at a low volume for strong, hypnogogic visions and transcendental possibilities.)
