Surprised that there's no thread for this album. One of the most enjoyable I've heard so far this year. The whole thing is great, but "Song for Zula" is song of the year material. Incredible.



1. "Sun, Arise! (An Invocation, An Introduction)" – 3:10
2. "Song for Zula" – 6:10
3. "Ride On / Right On" – 3:45
4. "Terror in the Canyons (The Wounded Master)" – 4:06
5. "A Charm / A Blade" – 5:20
6. "Muchacho's Tune" – 4:20
7. "A New Anhedonia" – 4:04
8. "The Quotidian Beasts" – 7:04
9. "Down to Go" – 5:16
10. "Sun's Arising (A Koan, An Exit)" – 3:19

I'm going to give this a listen. The Pitchfork review has me interested and the track streaming on Soundcloud sounds good.

To me this is his best album yet. His stuff is so underrated.

Yeah this is great after a full listen. Honestly thought it was going to be a Bon Iver rip off when the very first bit of vocal of the first song started but it's quite diverse and I enjoyed it a lot.

Song For Zula is such an incredible song. This album grabs me a lot more than his older work.

Bump because I still love this album and find this site's indifference toward it kind of baffling. I think a lot of people would love it.

8.8 on Pitchfork
A- on AV Club
85 on Metacritic, with not a single negative review.

Song For Zula has been getting a decent amount of play on SirusXM U so I am glad it's getting some recognition.

I dig it. I've only given it a few spins since the release, though. Easily my favorite thing I've heard from him.
