Freakwater lives! Their 2016 release, Scheherazade, has enjoyed universal critical praise, and ranks #63 on Metacritic's list of the best albums from that year. Not too shabby!
Buy the record from Bloodshot now. A 7" of a track from the record, "The Asp and the Albatross", with a non-album B-side, "The Allegory of the Cave", is also available.

Fiddler Anna Krippenstapel is half of the duo The Other Years. Also, here's a vid from opener Jaye Jayle.
