The French website La Blogothèque has been on a roll lately with its Take Away Shows video series, in which we see artists playing unamplified and in natural light. The latest participant is Chicago’s Ryley Walker, who released Primrose Green, a lovely album of ornate ’70s-style psych-folk, earlier this week. The Blogothèque crew filmed him playing his own songs “Primrose Green” and “Summer Dress” and covering Van Morrison’s 1974 song “Fair Play” at a Parisian party. Walker is a beast of a guitarist and singer, and that really comes across in his performances. Watch the three videos below.
Primrose Green is out now on Dead Oceans.
