Frank Schweikhardt’s Life But No More: Canadian Thanksgiving recommended purchase

On 9 October, 2011 by slowcoustic

Frank Schweikhardt - Life But No More

I picked up this album yesterday on limited white vinyl for $15.00 with shipping to Canada.  This is something to give thanks for on this Canadian Thanksgiving…or as I know it, Thanksgiving.

Everything about this album is easy; its beauty, how you immediately find yourself a bit more comfortable when it is playing and then how you will keep it playing over and over.  The only hard parts about it is learning the spelling of Frank’s last name and knowing the fact that it came out a couple years ago and you are just purchasing it now.

Listen:



Something else you might want to look into is his contribution to the LEM series (Laminar Excursion Monthly) that I subscribed to last year – it was a 3″ CD monthly subscription from the folks at Flannelgraph Records – it was good stuff (despite the fact that I can’t actually play 3″ CDs in my iMac….).  It is a little darker and lo-fi, but still great – you can stream or purchase it digitally now on Bandcamp.  Listen to the track ‘Best Man’ below:

    thanks for showing frank some love. we really, really love this album and get super excited when other people realize just how brilliant it is, too. fyi, frank’s headed into the studio next month to begin work on the follow-up, and it’s going to be just as good…maybe better?!?

    […] When trying to decide what to write for this, my instinct was to write about 5000 words about how much I love Elephant Micah and how I think he might have become my favorite songwriter of all time. However, I have written about that before, and I’m sure he’s been written about on this site. I also thought about saying how I think Frank Schweikhardt’s record Life But No More is one of my favorite records of all time, but you already know how good that is too. […]
