California's Robert Deeble is a critical fave who actually warrants the accolades. His last record, Thirteen Stories, is the ideal record for emotionally downtrodden folk who still worship at the altar of Nick Drake. Though he's almost too well-read for his own good, Deeble overcomes his literary pretensions to create sparse and affecting odes to misfortune and heartbreak, and his songs should please Decemberists fans and creative writing majors alike. Touring in support of his fine new EP This Bar Has No One Left, Deeble joins local songwriters Brent Best, George Neal and John LaMonica, among others, for a special Spune Productions showcase.
