More Info

Chicago songwriter and guitarist James Elkington, who has collaborated with everyone from Richard Thompson to Jeff Tweedy to Tortoise, casts glances back to British folk traditions as well as toward avant-garde horizons. These brilliant new songs, as accessible as they are arcane, buttress Elkington’s brisk guitar figures and baritone poetry with strings, woodwinds, and backing vocals by Tamara Lindeman of the Weather Station. “An epiphany… a cryptic storyteller and dazzling acoustic guitarist.” Rolling Stone “Elkington stands apart among the wave of 21st century guitar soloists. Beautiful, complex, and assured.” Pitchfork “A convincing, warmly whirling weather system of his own.” The Guardian.
