Mike Coykendall to tour US Sept/Oct 2015

Coykendallwalls420x250On July 17, Mike Coykendall released his 4th solo record and 22nd overall, Half Past, Present Pending.  American Standard Time called it “a slice of seriously fuzzy, spaced-out folk music”, which seems a pretty accurate description. With this record, Mike had the idea to strip things down (mostly) to his live “rig”, which finds him playing an oversized Kay guitar, a tin can kick drum, and hi hat, all run through layers of distortion and delay. Of course, he took a few liberties in the studio, but the point remains that sounds on Half Past, Present Pending are pretty much what you’re going to get when you see a Mike Coykendall show.  If you’d like to see it for yourself, now’s your chance…
