RIYL: The War On Drugs, Talk Talk, Fleetwood Mac, Kurt Vile
Label: Bella Union / Jonathan Wilson
LA-based music-maestro¬†Jonathan Wilson¬†drops his 3rd album¬†“Rare Birds”¬†via¬†Bella Union on¬†¬†March 2nd!
In-between recording and touring with Roger Waters, and recording/producing albums for Father John Misty¬†and Karen Elson, Wilson has somehow managed to finish his¬†upcoming¬†album and apparently expand his musical expression.
Where his former albums had a sunny CA late 60’s/early 70’s vibe to them, the first available track “Over The Midnight”¬†seems to draw inspiration from the 80’s, clearly influenced¬†by bands like¬†Talk Talk¬†and Fleetwood Mac in that era. Nice touch with that pixelated cover too.¬†Wilson has¬†described¬†Rare Birds¬†as a “maximalist,” high density album influenced primarily by 80s British production, and¬†I’ll have to point a finger towards The War On Drugs on this one. As a regular listener to his previous albums, I’ll certainly spend some time with this one.
Rare Birds also features contributions from¬†Father John Misty,¬†Lucius, Lana Del Rey, and New Age music legend¬†Laraaji.
