Modern & Primitive

by Half Deaf Clatch

  • Streaming + Download

    Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    It's Bandcamp Friday, and as usual I've done something special for it. This month I wrote and recorded a seven and a half minute song about Blind Willie Johnson in a 'modern' blues style, and recorded two of his songs in a more traditional acoustic style. I've cleverly called the EP 'Modern & Primitive' because I couldn't think of anything else to call it!
