New Cypress Grove Boogie b/w Forever Again
by Hans Chew
Three Lobed Recordings
TLR-075 - 2010
Hans Chew’s skill as a piano player has previously been on display both in a complementary fashion to Jack Rose (appearing as a member of Jack’s live backing band at Arthurdesh as well as on both The Black Dirt Sessions and Luck in the Valley) and as a integral member of D. Charles Speer & the Helix (including his vocal turns on both “Life Insurance” off Distillation and “Bar-Abbas Blues” off the “In Madagascar” 7”). This new single offers an expanded glimpse at not only Chew’s songwriting prowess but also his powerful boogie-blues, bar-rockin’ piano skills. Both tracks presented on this 7” are slated to appear on Chew’s forthcoming debut album, Tennessee and Other Stories, but appear in different versions exclusive to this release. The 7” itself is a vivid picture disc bearing stunning shots by Jake Cunningham and comes from a limited edition of 500 copies. This record is a joint release between Three Lobed and Divide By Zero.
