Peak with Purple Mountains
Inscrutable Silver Jews songsmith . . .
2SER Static host Berko speaks to inscrutable Silver Jews songsmith David Berman about the self-titled album under his new nom de plume, the poetic Purple Mountains.
He discusses the reasons for his enforced absence from music of ten years – including issues with his father and the Australian iteration of the ATP Festival – plus reveals his love for The Avalanches, Woods (who he made the new record with), and the great American songbook.
You can hear Static each week on 2SER, Thursdays at 8pm.
