a beautiful body of work that showcases Wolfe’s immense songwriting talent, recalling the powerful art-rock of elbow.
Sketched out in studios, hotel rooms, and on the road, Wolfe’s new record is the sound of a spirit unleashed, a daring return from a songwriter who has proved his worth over and over again. “I’m leaving mistakes in,” he states. “I’m making a record where the energy is what counts. Not the technicalities.” More Velvet Underground than Nick Drake, the new material is acoustic with an art-rock edge, akin to those early Elliott Smith recordings, the first 2 Bon Iver albums, or even Swedish songwriter Jose Gonzales. Simultaneously looking inward & outward, the new material is both deeply personal and bound by its context.
