There’s probably a decent independent movie script in Josh Scott’s story. I’s too circuitous for this forum, but it deals with Scott’s band, Amateur Love, and Justin Vernon’s DeYarmond Edison, and how Scott fled from imminent success, relocating in Chicago. Megafaun, Field Report and Bon Iver are all in there, as is Vernon’s reissue of the Amateur Love album, Scott’s serious health issues and a second retreat from a musical sure-thing. Finally, Scott created a new recording persona, Aero Flynn, and made a fantastic album with Vernon at the board and all-stars in the studio, and then vanished again. But the eponymous album was released earlier this year and Scott is now on tour. There are no ends.
