[AFTER-HOURS FOLK] It\'s about four years since we last heard from Carcrashlander, but that doesn\'t mean Cory Gray has just been sitting around in his basement playing Xbox. Quite the opposite: Just in the last year, dude toured with the Dandy Warhols and recorded with Shelley Short, while playing a one-off reunion gig with Norfolk & Western and producing records from numerous different acts. In between all that, Gray found time to make A Plan to Tell the Future, his first Carcrashlander album since 2010\'s You Were Born in a Hospital EP. Actually, he literally recorded in between sessions for the other bands he was producing, at Scenic Burrows in Goose Hollow. It\'s a free-flowing, largely unplanned exploration of sound inspired, Gray says, by the likes of Sun Ra, Captain Beefheart, Lee Hazlewood \"and maybe even a little Nick Cave.\" The result is a drizzly, atmospheric collection, occasionally jarred awake by eruptions of guitars and synths.
