Guest starring Caitlin Rose

Quarantined in the sleepy San Pedro neighborhood of Vinegar Hill, on the same

harbor-adjacent street where Charles Bukowski lived out his final years, David-

Ivar Herman Dune, visual artist and founding anchor of French antifolk stalwarts

Herman Dune, turned those Covid-induced anxieties inward and emerged from

his home studio with the new full-length LP Notes From Vinegar Hill. There’s

something for everyone on this record – folksy rockers, Bakersfield twang, Big

Pink-style Americana, 70s AM Gold, and rough-hewn Cold Turkey guitar stomps.

The songs speak of the suffocating claustrophobia of isolation and fear, the

anguish of being an immigrant in a country where policies harden by the moment,

but also of the beauty of California, the ocean, and a quiet life with three black

cats that turned the heart of a Scorpio toward felines. This album is dedicated to

David Berman.
