B.W. Johnson – My Love, Pt. 1 – Audio

The English dour-folk project B.W. Johnson was introduced last year.

Most recently to surface was the five track, approximately twenty six minutes, EP Together.

The opening song on the release (which is available on bandcamp), My Love, Pt. 1, which lasts a sliver under seven and one sixth minutes sets the scene for the ensuing material as the discordant vocal weeps in and out of tune and tempo with the acoustic guitar.

Rather than sounding like a critical error, this ischemic contusion, gives the track an earthy honesty which draws the listener closer to both the speakers and, their handkerchief to daub the eyes with the lamentation of the composition.

The listener finds themselves wearing worried brow as the music rolls in to the room with its furrowed visage.

An LP arrived this month – Moon #46 (available on bandcamp) which is highlighted by the middle of the seven tracks – Black River In A Drought – with its darkening delta-blues derivation that extends to a second under twelve and three quarters minutes, none of which is extraneous.
