New Songs for Walter
Songs for Walter came onto my radar some time ago, but in this latest release, it sounds like he’s gearing up for even more enchanting folk-influenced tunes. There’s something lighthearted in his vocal delivery on this run, though the chorus pulls back on it just a bit to give off a slight touch of differentiation. I really like the recordings of this tune too, as there’s so much filling in behind Laurie’s voice, be it strings or the careful strum of guitars; it’s less intimate in a sense than some of his previous tunes, but so much more powerful in its presentation. Give a listen, won’t you.
