Spoil with the Rest It’s a good record. But I can’t really listen to it anymore. It kind of broke my brain. It took a year, and there were a lot of times I thought it was going nowhere, a lot of botched sessions. It was all my fault, no one else’s.

Deafman Glance is the fourth studio album by American musician Ryley Walker. It was released in May 2018 under Dead Oceans Records. Written-by, Producer, Vocals, Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar – Ryley Walker. Producer, Arranged By, Keyboards, Lap Steel Guitar, Piano, Clarinet, Electric Guitar – LeRoy Bach

While it's true that none of his previous recordings could neatly sum up all he brought to the table, Deafman Glance takes the stranger and more relaxed approach from Golden Sings and goes down the rabbit hole to emerge with a record that sounds more "like him" than anything previously issued. Despite the fact that it was all recorded in a studio, this is the guy you are likely to experience on-stage on any given night.

Brooding and complex, Deafman Glance isn't easy to grasp, but repeated listens get you through the sophisticated structures to appreciate some mid-blowing moments, out-there lyrics, and, on Telluride Speed, hard-won prettiness.

Ryley Walker is sipping a cappuccino at Gaslight Coffee, a pricey but cozy coffee spot in Logan Square, one of Chicago’s hippest neighbourhoods, when he starts telling me how things used to be. This whole block used to be empty, he says. Due to the staggered out and tour break-dependent nature of the Deafman Glance sessions, the album took almost an entire year to be completely fleshed out. The constant gigging wore Walker out and he coped by getting fucked up every night, which carried over when he was home and recording. Man, it was really killing me being on the road for so long, he says.
