Watch Ezra Furman perform Cherry Lane in session for Best Fit

25 June 2014, 15:20 | Written by Paul Bridgewater


Ezra Furman has honed lo-fi garage rock-isms and rootsy hobo folk into something both peculiar and brilliant.

This year’s Day of the Dog - his second solo record after a trio of long players with former band The Harpoons - framed that talent in no uncertain terms: our reviewer commented “It’s brutal stuff in places – opening…with the words “all the world is rising up like vomit” shows all the signs of a man that means some fucking business, but at the same time leaves you wondering what kind of year he’s had.”

Furman cut a session take of the closing track from Day of the Dog - the timeless sounding “Cherry Lane”, which you can watch above. Catch him live at select dates and festivals throughout the UK this August and September with his new band The Boyfriends - dates and links below.
