RIYL: rambling folk music from the 60s and 70s

Label: Dead Oceans

2015’s cerebral folk instaclassic Primrose Green put Ryley Walker on the map, splintering into top 5s in many different music camps. ¬†The psychedelicized parties were smitten with Walker’s off-kilter acoustic sorcery, the folkheads stroked their beards in amazement as Primrose took them on¬†enchanting jazzy paths they’d never dared to tread, and the indie landscape as a whole welcomed this bright-eyed oddity/prodigy into their world, an overwhelmingly fresh breath of air in their sea of homogenous genres. ¬†Well, my friends,¬†Ramblin’ Ryley is back.

Newest single The Halfwit In Me is a triumphant return to Walker’s budding style, a double nod to his experimental folk forefathers in the 60s and 70s, but a confident and articulate voice for his own generation with his unique¬†additives and supplements. ¬†It’s as joyful and carefree as you remember him. ¬†Listen to it below.

Primrose Green sold out quite quick through Dead Oceans in early 2015, so even though no quantity has been expressed, I imagine this will sell out as well.  A double vinyl album for $23 is a pretty solid deal!
