Juan Wauters Breaks From the Beets for Beautiful Folk Tune ‘Water’
Uruguay-born Queens artist 'N.A.P. North American Poetry'
New York garage-folk hero Juan Wauters is breaking free from the Beets for his debut album, N.A.P. North American Poetry. In contrast to his shambolic band’s crude punkish impressions, the man’s solo material hews more acoustic and bare, showcasing his warm voice and knack for, yes, poetry that feels beamed in from a halcyon era. Below you can hear “Water,” which finds the Uruguay native contemplating his place in the cosmos over light strum. Take a glimpse at the track list and album art below, and keep an eye out for upcoming dates. Wauters’ globe-hopping live lineup includes singer Carmelle Safdie (Israel), multi-instrumentalist Tall Juan Zaballa (Argentina), percussionist Chie Mori (Japan), and flutist Amanda Rodi (Mexico). Watch the clip at the bottom of the post to learn what Jerry Seinfeld and Howard Stern have to do with it.
