You are now entering a pro-Joan Shelley zone. Be prepared to listen to some of the best contemporary folk music around. Joan Shelley is a pro at this, and she’s got a new record coming soon to prove it. The Spur is arriving June 24 via No Quarter Records, and features contributions from Bill Callahan, Meg Baird and more.
The title track is a great first taste, with lush but not overwhelming backing instrumentation lead by vibrant acoustic guitar & muted bass + percussion, but I also want to shout out the floating ambiance and drone the track, plus the tasteful electric guitar solo at the end. I can’t wait to check out the full record!
