SPOKANE release eMusic retrospective, Rick Alverson pens essay

Emusic.com has launched a free, 11-song SPOKANE retrospective, “A Small Commotion.” The tracks selected represent Spokane’s 9 year, unwavering dedication to a music that explores that fragile, emotional stillness so often marginalized by an American cultural addiction to the overt and ostentatious. These songs present a cohesive sampling of the band’s 5 records to date released by the seminal, anarchic Indiana label Jagjaguwar.

You can grab this free download here

Since the release of SPOKANE’s ‘Little Hours’ in August of 2007, Rick Alverson has kept pretty busy. He’s toured, built a house, and, for a very short time, worked as an extra on HBO’s upcoming “epic 7-part mini-series event”, “John Adams.” The latter inspired Alverson to write “A Half Dozen Dead Horses And I: Two Days As An Extra.” Stripping away any notions of Hollywood glamor, the essay presents the experience with the same blunt humanity that is the trademark of Alverson’s lyrics. Read the essay, and watch for his small-screen debut when the mini-series begins on March 16th.
