Big Fresh, one of Lexington, Kentucky’s most venerable pop music institutions, is proud to announce the upcoming release of “Fall Preview,” one of two EPs that the ten-member band has scheduled for 2017 on its own Desperate Spirits label. “Fall Preview” represents the first Big Fresh release in six years, following up the band’s third full-length, 2011’s Moneychasers, and will be available on collectible limited vinyl, and digitally, June 2nd.
Drawing from musical touchstones near and far, “Fall Preview” synthesizes the breezy harmonies of The Free Design, the lush arrangements of David Axelrod, and the gleeful deconstructionism of XTC.
“Target audiences include all citizens of China, manic depressives, scholars of jazz chord voicings, and recovering Catholics,” says band leader John Ferguson. “It’s sanguine music for turbulent times.”
