- American Dreamsicle
- Artist: John Wolfington
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 11/6/2007
Shortly after the 2001 release of his eponymous debut, John Wolfington took a break from New York City and made a trip cross-country in his 1982 Buick LeSabre. He stopped in Nashville and Memphis, broke down in Tucumcari, New Mexico, and even dipped down to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico before spending some time setting up a home life in Los Angeles. Heavily influenced by his time on the West Coast and his eventual return to NYC again in 2005, the ten songs on American Dreamsicle reflect Wolfington's experiences shortly before and during that trip and are sequenced chronologically from 2001 to 2006. As on Wolfington's previous full-length, Steve Shelley (of Sonic Youth) and Tim Foljahn (of Two Dollar Guitar) contribute drums and bass to the bulk of this album. Recorded at New York's Magic Shop with Brian Thorn, American Dream-sicle shimmers with a more direct sound à la Plastic Ono Band and After the Gold Rush-era Neil Young. The American Dreamsicle double-LP in a gatefold package includes Wolfington's self-titled debut LP as a bonus platter.
