Luke Winslow-King
Luke Winslow-King
Luke Winslow-King (born March 12th 1983) is a guitarist, singer, composer, and lyricist known for his slide guitar work, and interest in pre-war blues and traditional jazz. Winslow-King’s work consists of an eclectic mix, taking in delta-folk music, classical composition, ragtime, and rock and roll; juxtaposing original songs with those from a bygone era.

Whether solo, or with a band, Winslow-King offers an original sound that is both rustic and elegant. He delivers energetic and dynamic performances, with his burgundy voice and versatile guitar playing.
The Bells
The Bells
After a prolonged period at sea, THE BELLS recently washed up on the shores of Philadelphia, along with the archives of several failed record stores. During a brief sojourn on a desert island, they listened to three bands: the Go-Betweens, Sly and the Family Stone, and Townes Van Zandt. There were many arguments about who got to use the record player on the island, and, in an effort to compromise, the band was born.

"compact collapse" is a break from routine, break from tradition, break from responsibility.


10 explorations of fragile “mask”-ulinity (think Bonnie Prince Billy, Bill Callahan, or even Daniel Johnston) soaked in wine and emerging as a sound I’ve been calling “paisley romantic” (friends have told me this is a terrible phrase).



The songs started as repetitive and discordant ditties on nylon string guitar, somewhere between maddening and madrigal. But the varied arrangements and production keep things lively, from the left bank skiffle of “pitiful pieta” and “stay with me” to the desert americana of “na na na” and “aubergine.” there’s even the near-literal collapse in the (psychic) break of “disgraceful contemplation” to settle you in for the journey.



aaron sternick’s co-production brings clarity and vibe, and sarah jacoby’s ethereal harmonies throughout prevent this from becoming total dude city.



so settle in and collapse for a few, let’s start a new compact.
