Marfa Book Company, Interdimensional Music and Ballroom Marfa presented the excellent duo, New Bums, consisting of cult-heroes Ben Chasny and Donovan Quinn, formerly of Six Organs of Admittance and Sky Green Leopards, respectively. The show took place in the Highland Annex in Marfa, Texas.
New Bums were started in 2013 by guitarist/songwriter Ben Chasny, known best for Six Organs of Admittance (and a member of Rangda, Comets on Fire and many others) and Donovan Quinn, a key member of the psychedelic folk group Skygreen Leopards. The duo came together to form the minimal project, New Bums basing their sound around dual vocals and spare instrumentation providing a cerebral and skewed look at the tradition of American folk-blues.
