Beautiful melodies, harmonies, wordsmithery, and oodles of heartfelt sentimental texture to fill a million late-night drives, Kentucky’s Bendigo Fletcher’s latest release, ‘Memory Fever’, is depths worth getting lost in. And there is really no better gateway song than the center track, “Solar Eclipse 08/21/17”.

Solar eclipses are said to have a huge influence on human/animal behavior. And songwriter Ryan Anderson is not immune. Hearing this song, you get the sense that while witnessing an awe-inspiring astronomical happening, the storyteller found some kind of inner balance while he reflected on what has been and looked to what lied ahead. A new revelatory sense of self, integrated into a new life path. And, as you know, time keeps on slippin’…

The delicate strength and allure of this single and the EP as a whole will be familiar territory for fans of My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses, Iron & Wine and the like. And, according to the band’s Bandcamp page, the proceeds from the sale of this release will go to benefit the Natural Lands Trust: So much winning…
