M. Ward – Transistor Radio

Ever drive cross-country and tune in to snatches of hymns and country ballads on the AM dial? Matt Ward channels the ghostly airwaves; an old-timey troubadour, capturing menacing numbers and singalongs alike. John Parrish, Howe Gelb, Vic Chesnutt, and other pals drop in around the campfire, warm their voices for a song or two, then drift back into the darkness. Ward’s lo-fi (and utterly charming) ditties make you long for a past you never lived.
