Strand of Oaks: Heal
Buy! - (Dead Oceans)
The fourth album from this Philly-based project spearheaded by Tim Showalter finds him dramatically reshaping his sound from skeletal folk-rock to a more muscular and anthemic sound on dynamic, classic rock-rooted songs with fuzzy, at times explosive guitars, atmospheric synths and cavernous drums accompanying his warm, weathered vocals and deeply personal lyrics of catharsis, healing and rebirth. 6/6/2014 - Don Yates
