Josh T. Pearson | Sweetheart I Ain't Your Christ | Thou Art Loosed | A Take Away Show
Uncut Magazine picks the 50 best singer-songwriters albums, which includes Josh T. Pearson’s Last Of The Country Gentlemen: Uncut: "The Texan son of a preacher was living illegally in Berlin, his career stalled, when the failure of his marriage prompted an emotional and artistic spasm. Before fleeing to Paris, he spent two days in the studio, documenting his torment. The songs are as tough to listen to as they are emotionally honest; the hurt is only partly soothed by the grandiosity of Pearson’s language. He’s vicious to his ex on Sweetheart, I Ain’t Your Christ, though he’s just as hard on himself. The process was cathartic: 'It really burned something out of me,' Pearson reflected." We’re feel honored Josh T. Pearson will join Le Guess Who? in November together with artists like Annette Peacock, Destroyer, Julia Holter, Mirel Wagner and Kamasi Washington.

We'll announce new artists very soon after that, but in the meantime: we're proud to announce that the amazing Kamasi Washington will join us in November! Jazz saxophonist and composer Kamasi Washington is one of the most innovative new artists in jazz. At Le Guess Who?, he’ll perform work from his just-released, three hours long masterpiece The Epic, out through Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. Kamasi Washington previously performed with a diverse group of musicians, including Herbie Hancock, Lauryn Hill and Raphael Saadiq as well as on Kendrick Lamar’s latest album To Pimp A Butterfly. The Guardian: “The title isn’t kidding – this is a 172-minute spectacular for choir, classical orchestra and jazz band. Leader Kamasi Washington is a flamethrower of a saxophonist.” Tickets, info & hotel packages: www.leguesswho.com.
