Red Hunter and his band Peter & the Wolf are touring in support of his fantastic new album, Lightness. Released on L.A. label The Worker's Institute (home of Sigur Ros), Lightness mark's Peter & the Wolf's first official release, and is hands down the most beautiful work of Red's career. Catch them tonight in Denton at Rubber Gloves with Spitfire Tumbleweeds and Sarah Reddington. View all of the tour dates here, and if he comes through your town, wish him safe travels.
This song embodies everything I love about Red's work. It sounds like it's from another era, with Red's warm, familiar voice gently relaying stories of isolation, travel, and adventure. Highest recommendation:
