EDITORS’ NOTES

Singer/songwriter M. Ward's fourth studio album centers on intricate six-string work, with steel guitar and bluegrass-inspired fingerpicking, and gales of distortion giving it all an indie rock glow. His weathered tenor, often layered for maximum effect, cracks like well-worn vinyl and is especially vivid on airy highlights “Sweethearts On Parade” and “Here Comes the Sun Again.” Though it may feel like tuning in to '50s radio, Ward's nostalgia covers a much wider spectrum, including sterling covers of Bach and The Beach Boys.
