Sad, Sad Song

Staying in the Portland-based theme, A new M. Ward album is due out this summer (tenatively titled Post-War and tenatively coming out on August 22, tenatively), which means even more of his unique blend of gentle, understated old-school folk. There aren't many other artists out there that do a better job of sounding like they're coming through an AM radio circa the 1920's. Ward's lonesome crooning is absolutely perfect for listening to on those lonesome late summer nights. Plus the guy has some great guitar chops. Here are some highlights from previous albums:

M. Ward- One Life Away from 2005's Transistor Radio

M. Ward- Undertaker from 2003's Transfiguration of Vincent
