Fletcher Tucker is an American musician from Big Sur and the founder of Gnome Life Records. That label released his first album Cold Spring in 2017 and now the largely instrumental follow-up album Unlit Trail is out on Adagio830. Fletcher is also a visual artist inspired by nature mysticism and interested in the “wild edges of consciousness”. While his previous work as Bird By Snow was closer akin to acid folk, his music now feels more aligned to his occupation with connecting with nature. The new labum was recorded on the west coast of Sweden while he was on tour and comes with John Bauer-esque coverart. The album is about formulaic rituals, as in the droning “Emptiness Greets Form”.
