In addition to playing a bunch of music from the Scissor Tail Editions catalog, we also spoke with Dylan Aycock, who, along with running the label, also records raw experimental folk-based music of his own under his given name and as Talk West, the latter of which he has a terrific new album out as on the great Preservation label called Black Coral Sprig. Aycock has also collaborated with other Tulsa musicians, including Digitalis main man Brad Rose in Mohawk Park and Angel Food, and in another project called Golden Pawn. We touched on all of these various pursuits throughout the course of our conversation with Dylan.
