High & Lonesome presents... A. DYJECINSKI (EH-DEE-YEAH-CHIN-SKI) is originally from Nanaimo, British Columbia and lived for many years in Ontario but currently resides in London, U.K. where he works out of a home studio. His debut self-recorded album is as gritty and raw as it is minimal and vulnerable. The album as well as a 24 page photographic accompaniment will be released by Sideways Saloon Recording Company April 29th 2016 'Enigmatic and captivating... Too good to be reduced to the cliche of a solitary, bearded lo-fi-folk singer' Nothing but Hope and Passion ‘Slow burning and minimal, gently plucked guitar and drums frame his elegantly wounded tenor croon.’ The Line of Best Fit Support & backing from Jo Dudderidge of The Traveling Band & Altar Hanglands. In his own words... 'Dead Horses. It’s about my grandfather. He was a writer and spent time as a prisoner of war, the focus of his writing. I never meet him and know him only through the novels he left me written in Polish, a language I can't read. The first verse is through his eyes, speaking of the horrific things he'd seen and been through, the inspiration for his work, thrust upon him, his life. The second verse is me, making fun of myself and my synthetic experiences, me seeking solitude vs the second world war. My Grandfather's life in horrible conditions. Mine a construct of existential relativity. The chorus is the lesson he leaves me (unintentionally), the dog inside the house representing loyalty to home and land, domestication, civilization. The horse representing the wild nature of mankind. The realisation that what separates humans and animals is not our ability to reason or make tools, but that we invented an imaginary world, based on fantasy, and we believe it to be true. The balance between the two, the dog and the horse.'
