Oakland’s Actual Wolf (aka Eric Pollard) digitally released his album Faded Days on Redhouse Records earlier this month, and this weekend he’s celebrating the release at Slim’s, opening for North Carolina’s Mipso. We think you should attend, so we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the show.
To enter for a chance to win tickets to see Actual Wolf at Slim’s on June 16, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Actual Wolf” in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. A winner will be selected at random and notified via email.
Faded Days is less “country” than some of Actual Wolf’s previous work, leaning more to a modern take on the twangier sections of the Eagles’ catalog, (and I mean that as extremely high praise). It has so many wonderful harmonies, highway rhythms, and, well, fades that demand a drive with the windows down. Stream it via spotify below and download or preorder a vinyl copy via Amazon.
Mipso, Actual Wolf
