Back in the golden 1990s guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Curtis Harvey was in the thick of the indie scene as a member of the bands Rex and Pullman, the latter a veritable super group with players from Tortoise, Come, and Eleventh Dream Day. Now solo, Harvey continues to work in the acoustic-based mode he explored with Pullman and has recorded two albums in that vein, both on the local Fat Cat label: 2009’s Box of Stones and The Wheel, which comes out next month. To herald The Wheel’s roll-out (see how I did that?), Harvey will visit the Half Moon tomorrow night.

“With the exception of a few tunes, most songs developed over long periods of time,” says Harvey about the songs on The Wheel. “Some of the lyrics were written a year after the basic tracks, finally coming to me from out of the blue, or I would hear a line in my head and the rest of the song would just write itself around that.”

Here, Harvey plays “Joking” from Box of Stones:

Curtis Harvey will play at the Half Moon in Hudson, New York, on May 28 at 9pm. Admission is $5. For information, call (518) 828-1562 or visit thehalfmoonhudson.com/.
