Vic Chesnutt North Star Deserter on 180g 2LP

Vic Chesnutt was one of the finest songsmiths the music world has ever known. His words knock you back, his voice is like no other, and the two combined can deliver lyrical phrases that echo in your brain for weeks, months and years. 2007's North Star Deserter was the late great singer/songwriter's first for Constellation. The songs on North Star Deserter are some of the most bracing and intense of his career: macabre and fearless, playful and funny, at times deeply personal and at others, incongruously hopeful. 

The broad cast of players – all seven members of Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band, along with Guy Picciotto (Fugazi), Chad Jones & Nadia Moss (Frankie Sparo), Eric Craven & Genevieve Heistek (Hangedup), Bruce Cawdron (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Esmerine) and T. Griffin (The Quavers) – offered influences and approaches to Vic’s music that yielded a record unlike any other in his substantial discography. 

Recorded over the winter of 2006-2007 by Howard Bilerman, at one of the last sessions to take place at the original Hotel2Tango location in Montreal (the studio moved in spring 2007) with Jem Cohen overseeing production (along with Efrim  Menuck and Thierry Amar of Silver Mt Zion, and Guy Picciotto). Mastered at Grey Market by Harris Newman
