Description

Townes Van Zandt never reached significant fame during his lifetime. Although highly respected by his peers and other songwriters, the mood and atmosphere of his music, coupled with his sometimes dark and sarcastic nature, was not suitable for the commercial country-industry of Nashville. Van ZandtÕs songs did, however, reach popularity in his day through other artists; within his circle of outsider singer-songwriters, he was adored, though ultimately depression and alcoholism overshadowed his life. Van Zandt passed away in 1997, and the fact that artists as diverse as Robert Plant, Mudhoney, Norah Jones, Lyle Lovett and Bob Dylan have kept his songs alive and vital is a testament to the influence and impact of his music. We bring forward now Neurot’s second installment of homage to this great artistÑ following 2012’s Songs of Townes Van Zandt from Saint Vitus/The Obsessed’s Scott “Wino” Weinrich and Neurosis’ Steve Von Till and Scott Kelly.
