Alpha Mule (from the album Peripheral Vision)
Alpha Mule is a Southern California duo of artistic multi-taskers, the group’s musicians both entrenched in a visual art world with Joey Forkan an exhibiting painter and Professor of Art at CSU Fullerton and Eric Stoner a professional photographer, teaching photography classes at Laguna College of Art and Design. The recent release from Alpha Mule, Peripheral Vision, was recorded in Tucson, Arizona, the album featuring local Arizona musicians with Calexico’s Joey Burns and Jacob Valenzuela. With a west coast focus, Peripheral Vision, debuts the sound of Alpha Mule, and their mix of Blues, Folk, Country, Bluegrass, and Rock’n’Roll.
Alpha Mule shuffle along with the shady characters and quick moving hustlers in “Pavlov”, dance a wavering waltz melody over “The Distance”, back “Mule in the Mine” with a jugband ramble, and put a little Country into the love story of “On the Moon”. Peripheral Vision strums a honky tonk sway for its title track and follow as the banjo leads down the outlaw trails through “Corpus Christi” as Alpha Mule use instruments as the storyline for a western adventurer in “The Ballad of Huell Howser”.
