After a ten year hiatus, the San Francisco based band American Music Club have reunited for a series of shows. The band will release a collection of songs spanning their career and are currently working on a brand new album. Vocalist/guitarist Eitzel is joined by original AMC members Dan Pearson, Tim Mooney and Vudi, as well as new addition Marc Capelle. The songs of Tom Brosseau, a North Dakota native, touch on, in Brosseau's words, "abandoned buildings, new love, the praireland, being haunted, roaming around, and being thrilled and killed." It is the work of a master storyteller, who draws from such diverse influences as Marty Robbins, Led Zeppelin, Nick Drake, and Billie Holiday.
Italian-American musician Rob Curto brings passion, energy and musicality to the accordion, shedding new light on the instrument's many timbral and rhythmic possibilities. The Los Angeles Times writes that, "Curto's originals..combine traditional authenticity with persuasive dashes of jazz."
