Here’s a song Brant Buckley wrote about the strange times we are all currently going through.

Here is what he had to say:

“This song is an ode to the Delta Blues Masters in particular Skip James. I did a lot of spiritual channeling when creating and recording this song. I have gone to all of the old Blues Graves in the Chicago area: Muddy Waters, Big Bill Broonzy, Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf, and Willie Dixon. Their ghosts and shadows are my teachers. I wanted to create something very haunting and ghostly in a Bluesy kind of way. The only 2 Blues guys that I am aware of who have done this are Skip James and Robert Johnson. There is another non human entity on their Blues recordings. It is also a song about the insanity of the pandemic that we are all going through, Times Strange.

Recorded by Brant Buckley and mixed/mastered by Aaron Bastinelli of Fun Sound Studio in Brooklyn, NY. Aaron has worked with U2, The Roots, Foster The People, Maggie Rogers, Matt and Kim, and Noah Cyrus.”
