about

While Austin Glover and Eric Perreault have been part of the Full Spectrum family since the very beginning, ​Freight 1110 Through Greensboro ​marks their first appearance as a duo. The album has been a long time coming. The two began their preparations when they lived together in Greensboro's Lindley Park neighborhood, within earshot of the freight line that passes through town. Their house had a large magnolia tree out front; one Halloween Glover stepped on a broken bottle in their yard and was out of commission for weeks. Though begun in Greensboro, the duo recorded throughout a series of moves over the years.

The home-recorded collection expands on the avant-folk work Glover and Perreault have both done in Andrew Weathers Ensemble, this time with a slightly more refined take. Poems by e.e. cummings and W.B. Yeats become country ragas accompanied sometimes by a single fiddle, sometimes by an orchestra of overdubs. ​Freight 1110 Through Greensboro ​is an intensely personal ode to the southern city that has also been home to folk experimentalists Eugene Chadbourne and Henry Flynt. Glover and Perreault continue in this tradition though less roughly-hewn; think Flynt meets Glass.
