After some time wallowing in his own mire, the creative genius behind defunct stone-folkers The Dutchess and The Duke is at it again. That’s right, Jesse “The Duke” Lortz is back in our empty lives and he’s got a new wine-swillin’, livin’ room lady singin’ guitar project he wants us to REVEL in! Case Studies is the name (how nerdly!), and it sounds NOTHING like a person writing in all CAPS and with several exclamation points would lead you to believe! In FACT, it’s rather melancholy. Deception!
New album, The World Is Just a Shape to Fill the Night, is out August 16th on Sacred Bones Records. Stream the whole thing over at Paste Magazine. It was (mostly) recorded at a secluded cabin in Sequim. How idyllic!
