Will Stratton’s second album for Bella Union, “The Changing Wilderness”, is our album of the week. Pastoral folk for troubled times, Stratton’s seventh LP is yet another gem to be explored by fans of fingerpicking songwriters.
After a small break to record some music in the folky “superband” (we’re guilty, but can we all please forget this concept?) Bonny Light Horseman, Eric D. Johnson celebrates 20 years of Fruit Bats with a brand new record. “The Pet Parade” shows Johnson, one of the best melody crafters of the game, at his most dreamy and contemplative so far.
