M. Ward, Hold Time

24 02 2009


Normally the easiest way to make me throw up in my mouth is to offer up any kind of country or folk music. However, when it comes to alt. country/folk rocker, M. Ward, I make an exception. More specifically, when it comes to M. Ward’s latest record, Hold Time. Hold Time brings a bluesy and, at times, lush and dreamy feel to M. Ward’s usual country folk sound. It’s the real deal, and, in my opinion, Ward’s best offering yet. The album features contributions from Zooey Deschanel, Jason Lytle, and Lucinda Williams (on an awesome rework of Oh Lonesome Me). Check it out, you can stream the entire album for free at Spinner.
