"Whisper Mountain" b/w "Everything's Gone Grey" is the latest release from self-proclaimed trash poet, novelist and songwriter John Wesley Coleman.
John Wesley Coleman is a member of Austin's The Golden Boys. Coleman gained underground recognition for his incredible solo debut LP, Steal My Mind (2009). The record was a lo-fi gem—reminiscent of Lou Reed's solo albums, The Television Personalities' catalog and Alex Chilton's late '70s releases. When not playing with The Golden Boys, Coleman continued to release solo material, for both Permanent Records (Bad Lady Goes to Jail) and seminal Memphis label Goner (The Last Donkey Show). Coleman's toured multiple times under his own name—with or without the support of a band. "Whisper Mountain" b/w "Everything's Gone Grey" finds Coleman continuing in his lo-fi ways (the B side was recorded in a kitchen), this time backed up by his new group: bassist Geena Spigareli and drummer Yamal Said.
The "Whisper Mountain" b/w "Everything's Gone Grey" 7-inch is the fourth release from Spacecase Records.
...What appeals to me here is Coleman’s lo-fi approach to his music. Simple and clean...
