[FOLKSY EXHUMATION] More important than his auld-tyme manner of dress or that Jack White’s Third Man Records released his latest single, Los Angeles-based Frank Fairfield seeks to exhume lost American music and retrofit otherwise seemingly exhausted styles. Whether he’s fiddling or playing guitar, Fairfield lights upon a pulsing vein of rustic, rural composition most folks think only exist in Coen Brothers movies. The B-side of his most recent effort, “Devils Dream Medley,” finds Fairfield fiddling through soldered-together sections of a composition that’s pretty old—old enough that there’s no real way to pinpoint its origin. Whether it sounds “authentic” is secondary: Fairfield’s doing significant cultivation, and manages to make it entertaining.
