Gillian Welch: The Harrow & The Harvest
Buy! - (Acony)
The Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s first album in eight years (and fifth overall) is a stunning return to form that strips back the full band sound of 2003’s Soul Journey in favor of mesmerizing acoustic duets in the style of her classic 2001 release Time (The Revelator), with elegant guitar finger-picking and sublime close harmonies fleshing out a beautifully crafted set of richly detailed songs ranging from dark ballads laced with traditional folk imagery to atmospheric folk-pop reminiscent of some of Neil Young’s classic ‘70s recordings. 6/20/2011 - Don Yates
