RIYL: Sufjan Stevens, Cass McCombs, Beirut

Label: Songs Records

Manchester singer-songwriter Francis Lung has prepared a batch of 6 songs to soothe your sore throats, cool your bloodshot eyes and warm your bruised and bloodied hearts.  Similar to Sufjan’s 2015 acoustic opus Carrie & Lowell, I was immediately charmed by the amount of soul I could feel in the sparseness of these recordings.  Lung’s multi-octave vocal hits every feel in my bones, whether he’s crooning over a mandolin or crying falsettos over crisp guitar reverb.

Originally released in 2015 on white vinyl in an edition of 500, Vol I (Faeher’s Son) is the perfect pairing with the coming cold weather.  Please keep in mind that these will be shipping from the UK, so shipping will reflect that price.  I think a few extra bucks is absolutely worth spending on such a solid debut.  Stay safe out there, amigos.
