Within the past few hours the US alt-folk creator Ryan Raiden released his début three track single Painting.
An approaching nine minute release that combines skeletal acoustics and associated percussion that envelopes the listener in its construct, allowing the audience to generate their own inflections.
Instantly capturing the ears is the baritone vocal which travels around the room in sonorous lament, and akin to many folk singers it is noticeably out of kilter with the backing and for its very disassociation, as with significant players of the genre of the past, creates a connection with the listener.
My selection from the release is the closer – 67.
