NotesFAT KNUCKLE FREDDY CD RELEASE! Vying for the Soul 8PM VYING FOR THE SOUL is being released on Not Yet Remembered Records on 12/3/21. FKF will be having a Album Release show at Blue. This is what NYR has to say.... Will and I are very excited to bring you our next release, ‘Vying for the Soul’ by Fat Knuckle Freddy. Versed in modern classical composition, American Primitive guitar and hybrid punk/blues, FKF (@fatknucklefreddy) has put together an album of haunting, subdued, guitar/synth tunes to help ring in the colder months of the year… soundscapes for the season. This album follows a slightly more abstract record (Diabolus Ambientium) composed using a 72-tone scale and another (Corruption, Deceit, Murder) that was dead ahead American Primitive. The genre-melding tracks on this particular record leach soul, pensive emotion and conjure images of walking through a town or cemetery during the cold fog of dawn. We think this record will appeal to ambient and classical guitar fans alike and we hope you’ll enjoy. - Ben @ NYR You can Pre-Order the album on Bandcamp. https://notyetremembered.bandcamp.com/releases
