Western Seeds Record Company, Los Angeles, California One of California’s most prolific and profound songwriters is putting his writer’s pen aside and releasing an album of covers. Fancy Free, the new solo album from Robert Rex Waller Jr., summons works from brilliant obscure artists and icons of popular music alike, taking listeners into a soundscape of exuberance, heartache, and everything in between. It’s a place where the plaintive strummings of Daniel Johnston and Mike Stinson commingle with the visionary lyricism of Neil Young and Nina Simone, and with wonderfully off-kilter romps from the Oak Ridge Boys, The Hollies, and The Doors. These are songs you know, or will instantly feel you know, rendered entirely fresh and compelling. They hit you deep, make you grin wide, and often do both at once.
