New in the Shop: Big Red Machine

A new Justin Vernon-related album comes out this week! Big Red Machine (recorded with Aaron Dessner of The National, among other people) is out Friday, August 31. We've got CDs and LPs down at The Local Store and online: CDsLPs

MORE: In 2008, Aaron Dessner sent Justin Vernon an instrumental sketch of a song called "Big Red Machine" for Dark Was The Night. This was before they had met in person. Justin wrote a song to it, interpreting the Big Red Machine title as a heart. 10 years of friendship later, there are 10 more songs. Big Red Machine. Each song includes a large number of collaborators via the PEOPLE platform and the record was produced by Justin and Aaron with longtime collaborator Brad Cook and engineered by Jonathan Low primarily at Aaron's studio Long Pond in Upper Hudson Valley, NY

August 31: Opening Reception, "The Big Paintings" by Denise Presnell

Friday, August 316:30-8:30pm • 205 N. Dewey St., Eau Claire • Facebook • Web

Join us in the Volume One Gallery for an opening reception for local artist Denise Presnell's solo gallery show! Although her imagery is rooted in nature (and in particular forest and water subjects) her style is abstract in direction. Presnell uses oil on canvas, acrylic and oil paint stick on canvas, and a unique medium incorporating oil on Plexiglas mounted over oil pastel on linen mat board. The work expresses a sense of personal freedom. Stop by on Friday (Aug. 31, 6:30-8:30pm) to meet the artist and see her striking work.

The show will hang in the gallery through October 27.
