SAM13-LP
Release Date: December 4, 2015

But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted makes its first appearance on vinyl with a limited initial pressing on translucent blue vinyl. The LP also contains a download card for the entire CD program of original tracks and bonus demos.

Before Sam Amidon's acclaimed albums for Nonesuch Records and Bedroom Community, he'd released a few on his own. After a collection of traditional Irish instrumentals, Amidon (as samamidon) delivered his true “debut” But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted.

Recorded in 2005 with longtime collaborator Thomas Bartlett (Mumford & Sons, Sufjan Stevens, The National, David Byrne), Vermont-born Amidon re-imagines traditional songs alongside covers as diverse as Mississippi John Hurt to Tears For Fears, and rearranges them into his own unique and mesmerizing compositions. Unavailable for years, original copies now sell for top dollar on the collectors market. Nearly a decade later, But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted finally receives the reissue it deserves.
