PHOTOS: Cory Wong Hits The Hi-Fi In Indianapolis

first_imgLoad remaining images Last night, Cory Wong (Vulfpeck, The Fearless Flyers) continued his ongoing tour with a performance at The Hi-Fi in Indianapolis, IN featuring support from Cody Fry. The current tour comes in support of Wong’s new solo album, The Optimist, released earlier this month.As the album’s announcement press release pondered,Why The Optimist? At age 16, after suffering a concussive head injury, Wong had been told he had two weeks to live. Or maybe he would be fine. The doctors honestly weren’t sure why his right arm kept going numb, but following a month-and-a-half of visits and tests and second opinions, their best guess was that he had a blood clot with the potential to reach his brain at any moment. If that happened, death would be nearly instantaneous. … Wong survived, of course, and while his symptoms eventually faded away, the relentlessly defiant brand of optimism he cultivated that summer never did. In fact, nearly two decades later, it forms the bedrock of his ecstatic new album, The Optimist. Recorded in spontaneous sessions with a series of all-star lineups, the collection showcases both Wong’s prodigious instrumental virtuosity and his broad emotional reach. The songs are profoundly funky, infectiously joyful, and as playful as they are peerless. Paired with his quirky music videos, the tracks feel retro and futuristic all at once. At a time of bitter political strife and deep cultural divisions, Wong has crafted something truly unifying: an album that delights in the pleasures of human connection and revels in the limitless possibility of artistic collaboration.You can listen to The Optimist below, and learn more about the time-pressed creation of the album and its serendipitous list of contributors here.Cory Wong – The Optimist – Full AlbumYou can catch Cory Wong on the road this fall, so check out his tour dates below.
