Sam Evian at The Blue Room Nashville

This Event is General Admission – Standing Room Only > It was New Years Eve 2022, the night before Sam Evian started recording Plunge, his fourth LP, now set for release on Flying Cloud Recordings via Thirty Tigers – his first album on his new imprint. He invited his friends and fellow musicians to his property in the Catskills, where he’d just painstakingly relocated and revamped his Flying Clouds Studios into a new barn on the property, restoring a vintage console and tape deck from 1974. Adrianne Lenker brought a jug of maple syrup from Vermont, Sufjan Stevens set off fireworks in the meadow, and at midnight, the group of friends cold-plunged into a nearby creek as it started snowing.

The result is Evian’s best album to date: a cathartic rock record that melds power pop, iridescent guitar, raucous psychedelia, and Sam’s now sought-after grooves. The music is both fresh and familiar, sonically inspired by his penchant for early 70s production and creatively propelled by the free-spirited process depicted in the Beatles documentary Get Back, as well as his urge to let go. Hypnotic opener “Wild Days” is an uplifting overture centered around a pulsing rhythm section and a guitar solo designed for the open road, while “Jacket” opens with a tight guitar riff, Baroque pop elements and a strong nod to the Beatles. “Rollin In” is a psychedelic-infused blissed-out masterpiece, peppered with saxophone and Rhodes, both played by Sam.
