Damn, missed another gem from 2008. How did Seagull’s Goodbye Weather slip by? Where the hell was I?

The sad thing is, I think I actually grabbed this in November, and it sat on my player for a little while before I realized it was there. When I listened, I loved it and was going to post on it, but then something (can’t remember what) distracted me, then I came back, then distracted, etc, etc…. and now, finally, in February, I look up and realized I never discussed this beautiful album!

For shame, too, because it’s beautiful. Chris Bolton delivers lo-fi, quasi-folkish, sparse, with a sense of loneliness, desolation, & a bit of fragility, like I said, beautiful. We featured “Baby” in our podcast yesterday, so those of you brave enough to listen to it have a taste of what to expect. A perfect winter album, and considering what a deep and long winter this is/has become, I can’t think of anything more appropriate.
