about

Another Burn On The AstroTurf (January 24, 2020, Fluff and Gravy Records) was recorded over five days by a seven-piece band inside the OK Theater. It’s a melancholy rhapsody that recalls the uncorked rock n’ roll spirituality of king mystic Van Morrison, the gloomy nostalgia of dark prince Nick Drake and the songcraft sans self-seriousness of 70s Muscle Shoals.

Like those psycho-spiritual song crafters, his power comes from vocal idiosyncrasies – intonations of love, impermanence, hope, humor. The album opens with Budwig originals “Time For Two”, “First To Go”, and “Strong Coffee”– originally presented with just solo guitar (and crackling wood stove) on the album Sabai. The songs are recorded here live, full band, in medley, with hot electric guitar, woody double bass, and drums. The band electrifies and scourges the flesh of the songs into fully formed folk rock stunners.

The brightest moments on the album come from a transcendent Rolling Stones “Beast Of Burden” homage, “Rolling Stoned”, in which he ponders if he is, in fact, bad enough, rich enough, good enough. The answer is, of course, not, but he also humorously notes that if any of us were that good, then aren’t we better off with...something better? On “Sock Song” the dynamics of intimate relationships boil down to one sock’s tendency to wander from its destined partner as soon as it hits the dryer. His musical similarities to spiritual seekers Van Morrison and Nick Drake are undeniable now, but he’s not lost on the path as them, he’s grounded, infectiously grateful. Bart’s mastery of dramatic irony turns his work with complex emotional states of being into comforting, uplifting, relatable music.

Track Name: Human Again
You know that I'm here for only one night
You know that I'm shy and don't know what's right
You make a move, I won't say it's a sin
It's good to feel human again

If I could find the will to stay
And you could find a way to bend
We'd run through the trees, make love on our knees
It's good to feel human again

[When I was a child with a bible in my hands
I'd pray to the Lord make me human again] x2
When I was a man with a child in my hands
I'd pray to the Lord make me human again x3

You know that I'm here for only one night
You know that I'm shy and don't know what's right
You make a move, I won't say it's a sin
It's good to feel human again

[When I was a child with a bible in my hand
I'd pray to the Lord make me human again] x2
When I was a man with a child in my hand
I'd pray to the Lord make me human again x3
