I am just now downloading M. Ward’s Hold Time, his new album on Merge Records. A few of the songs I heard this morning on NPR sound similar in feel and timbre to his earlier material; though I am looking forward to the album revealing its unique little blossoms – those little moments that ingrain themselves and become the soundtrack of random moments-to-moments – I am just really, really, really stoked to hear that familiar husky voice. Listen to it here.
Press release after the jump:
