Charlemagne is Carl Johns. His second record Detour Allure came out Oct 18 on Side Cho Records (Neva Devona, Tokyo Rose). Like his debut, this one is also a type of soft, beach boys inspired psychedelic experience. The song “Your Scars” is the most folky track but even still it has a sheen on it it that makes it more like The Shins then Bob Dylan.
The band also will have a song on the Loose Music compilation Start Your Own Country (Loose Music, Oct 17) that I have been blathering about of late. Here’s four tracks from Detour Allure. Buy it here.
