Burnside Album Details
Fernando, True Instigator
"True Instigator, Fernando's seventh full-length, was recorded in Portland by Adam Selzer (Norfolk and Western, M. Ward). It was mixed by Jeff Stuart Saltzman (Sleater-Kinney, Stephan Malkmus), Luther Russell (Richmond Fontaine), Mike Coykendall (M. Ward, Old Joe Clarks, Richmond Fontaine, She and Him), and Adam Selzer; the first two mixing two songs each, with Coykendall and Selzer jointly mixing the rest of the album. The album is a return to form for Fernando, following 2006's heavily pop-leaning Enter To Exit and 2001's stark, acoustic focus on Dreams of the Sun and Sky. True Instigator offers up straight-ahead rock, alt. country starkness, and haunting melodies.
