Crossing between love, gender, sexuality and religion, and singing in solidarity with the innocent, persecuted, oppressed and threatened, Ezra Furman provides a soundtrack for the current fear and loathing in America like no other.
His second album for Bella Union,
Transangelic Exodus, is a new landmark for the
American singer–songwriter: ‘not a concept
record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of
stories on a theme, a combination of fiction
and a half–true memoir,’ according to its
author. ‘A personal companion for a paranoid
road trip. A queer outlaw saga.’ Perfect for an
artist always on the move, always evolving.
