After more than two decades of activity, Carl Hultgren (of the acclaimed duo Windy & Carl) is finally releasing his own solo album. I’d read before, in an interview done with Windy Weber, that she had been gifted Carl’s solo work but I don’t think it will be seeing the light of day – unless this is what she was speaking of? The only thing we can hear from the album so far is “Not Afraid” and if you like Windy & Carl, you are definitely going to like it. “Not Afraid” sounds like something that would’ve been found on the self-titled EP Windy & Carl released on Record Store Day two years ago; fun fact: I ownÂ both colors. Carl Hultgren’s guitar work on “Not Afraid” will soothe the soul with honeyed riffs and gentle reverb/echo. If you pre-order the vinyl (or CD, which is also limited – moreso than the vinyl), you will also get access to six additional bonus tracks whichÂ has the album’s playing time clock inÂ at almost two hours. From a branch of Windy & Carl, I’d expect nothing less. Listen to “Not Afraid” below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
An all instrumental offering from Carl Hultgren (one half of Windy & Carl) is set for release on 20th MAY 2014. A Limited Edition Double LP of 500 copies (one album on ORANGE VINYL, the other on BLACK VINYL) will include a DOWNLOAD CODE of the complete album, along with 6 ADDITIONAL BONUS SONGS recorded during the same sessions. WITH THE ADDITION OF THESE EXTRA SONGS, IT BRINGS THE RUNNING TIME OF THIS AT JUST UNDER 2 HOURS LONG *** THESE DOWNLOAD ONLY BONUS SONGS ARE AVAILABLE ONLY WITH THE PHYSICAL VINYL OR CD PURCHASE.
Pre-order includes immediate download of 1 track in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app. You'll also get the complete album the moment itâs released.
