Jim O’Rourke, O’Rourke, O’Rourke. He’s been a member of Sonic Youth, Gastr Del Sol and Loose Fur. He’s recorded with or produced John Fahey, Fennesz, Flying Saucer Attack, Joanna Newsom, The Red Krayola, and made soundtracks for Werner Herzog. He’s like a Steve Albini for people who like a bit of avant-jazz mixed in with their steady diet of hardcore and Burt Bacharach.
I like him.
Jim, you’re alright.
Here’s his recent album The Visitor, possibly not the best solo album he’s made, but only because of the stiff competition.
