Werner Ghost Truck

by Barn Burning

With their second full-length release Barn Burning create soundscapes that are both stark and expansive through which singer Anthony Loffredio drifts, a contemplative and angst-ridden Nomad. Musically the sound is a blend of alt-country, folk and post-roc

Album Notes
On “Werner Ghost Truck,” Barn Burning’s second full-length release, the band explores a darker and more diverse landscape than in their former recordings. The record was primarily engineered and produced at The Estate by Jim Reynolds (Jason Anderson, Tigersaw, Casey Dienel, etc.) in a big empty house during the middle of winter. Reynolds, also the caretaker for this estate, allowed Barn Burning to experiment and explore during the whole of the recording process, time being not much of an issue. Werner Ghost Truck is a journey through soundscapes, moods, and stark images - filled with the sounds of empty rooms, cold stairwells and shortwave radio frequencies. Some of the songs on the record are nearly three years old while others were worked out as the tape was rolling. “Long Dark Room” was actually written in a long dark room and sounds much like its title. “Friendship Fails You” features the rumbling baritone guest vocals of Robert Fisher (Willard Grant Conspiracy).

“Put the Drunk Drivers on The Guest List” was written while Anthony had a broken hand and encompasses much of what you will find
on the record; whispered, quiet finger-picking exploding into loud guitars and distorted violins then dying back down into again into whispers and piano pieces. This time around Barn Burning is much louder yet also considerably quieter than it has ever been.
