Willem Maker was one of the fellas that really blindsided me at the Deep Blues Festival. About 1/2 way through his set I leaned over to the dude standing beside me and asked, “Who is this again?” He replied, “I dunno. Some dude called William Maker.” Personally, I won’t be fucking his name up anymore.
Last week it just got a whole lot easier to get his album, Stars Fell On. Stars Fell On was originally self-released in 2007 as a limited pressing of 1000 copies (still available here). The Fat Possum imprint, Big Legal Mess Records, has now picked the album up for a wide distribution. You should check it out.
