#226: M. Ward, “Migration Stories”

We thought about not posting anything else for a day except John Prine tunes. But hey, there’s 1h43min of new tunes to listen to, and we’re not holding them hostage. This week, we focus on M. Ward’s tenth LP, Migration Stories. Which is, basically, more of the same. Fortunately for us, was there a time where “more of the same” from the American singer-songwriter meant anything other than good news?
