RIP Vic Chesnutt

My introduction to Vic Chesnutt came through the 2004 Daniel Johnston compilation, The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered. In many ways it was the perfect pairing, with one near otherworldly yet wholeheartedly and deeply human voice singing for another. The world will miss Mr. Chesnutt. But thankfully, we don't have to miss his music. With 17 albums and collaborations with everyone from Widespread Panic, Elf Power, and Lambchop to his most recent work with Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, the man has left behind a vast record of his creativity that is fully worth diving into. And once you've come back up for air, return, again and again, for more.
