After releasing a quiet and meditative solo album, 2013’s A Sudden Loss of Elevation, local songwriter Don Chambers assembled a crack backing group and got weird. Disquietude, out earlier this year, was an unwieldy collection of textured folk tunes, industrial noise pieces and other back-room experimentations.
As a whole, it sounded a bit like a mind slowly unraveling, and the video for “Grow Back Into the Ground,” which you can stream below, doesn’t do much to restore confidence in Chambers’ psychic fortitude. The stark, creepy clip matches up nicely with the song’s haunted folk vibe.
Don Chambers plays Green Room Saturday, July 26 with Dave Marr.
