Loaded Fork This is the solo project of Chicago’s Rob Merz. He has followed-up his 2008 debut (BE QUIET AS YOU LEAVE) with EVERYTHING YOU KNEW BEFORE YOU KNEW EVERYTHING. You can download it now from his Bandcamp site. Although we’ve already heard five of these songs from an album teaser EP released in December 2012, there are eight more for fans to sink their teeth into. One of my faves is “Bitter Branches.”
