After a hiatus of several years (with Big Lazy leader Stephen Ulrich, spending time as a composer for shows like HBO’s Bored to Death), Big Lazy is back with a new album, video, and tour.
Big Lazy’s fifth album, Don’t Cross Myrtle, dwells in the landscape of gritty yet elegant noir Americana. With sparse instrumentation, the trio creates evocative musical narratives with an undeniable sense of place and character. With a nod towards classic guitar instrumentals (Link Wray, Santo and Johnny) and a fiery performance style that swerves into improvisational jazz, the new album captures the essence of the trio’s legendary live shows.

Charlie is part of the Duluth, MN, music scene (Alan Sparhawk and Low, Trampled by Turtles) but he made the album in the South this time, traveling to rural North Carolina to record with fellow musician Phil Cook (Megafaun, Hiss Golden Messenger). He joined Cook and a cast of local players, setting up in an old outbuilding on the “Down Yonder Farm” outside HIllsborough, NC. As well as being the first album Charlie has recorded outside of his native Minnesota Stumpjumper is his first to feature a full band.
