Editors’ Notes Elephant Micah features the songs of Joe O’Connell, who at times could be mistaken for Will Oldham, a major influence on his music who guests here as a harmony vocalist. Surely fans of Oldham’s most straightforward acoustic folk will feel at home with Where in Our Woods, a sparse but sublime album that’s as much about the space between notes as the notes themselves. Joe’s brother Matthew O’Connell plays a stripped-down drumset on “Demise of the Bible Birds” to accompany the nylon string guitar and antique pump organ, but “Slow Times Vultures” and “Monarch Gardeners” create auras ever more quietly.
