Portland rock veterans and legendary lyricist visit the 'BOO.

This week, we take a deep dive into The Accidental Falls, the new, Peter Buck-produced album from Portland's Eyelids, with the help of the band's celebrated frontmen, John Moen and Chris Slusarenko, and lyricist Larry Beckett. John's a member of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame from his tenure with the legendary Dharma Bums, and his "day job" is drumming for The Decemberists, but he plays guitar and sings with Eyelids, as does Chris, who led legendary grunge-era Portland band Sprinkler and played for several years with Guided by Voices. Returning four-time Songcircle guest Larry Beckett grew up with singer-songwriter icon Tim Buckley, and wrote lyrics for several of Tim's most celebrated songs. Larry provided all the lyrics - some old, and some brand-new - for The Accidental Falls. We'll hear how this collaboration took root, grew, and reached full flower in the songs on this brilliant new album.
