Chuck Johnson - The Cinder Grove LP
The follow-up to Johnsons lauded "Balsams" album, "The Cinder Grove" delves further into the compositional possibilities of the pedal steel guitar, creating a type of country post-rock with touches of the cosmic.
This halcyon collection of tracks draws on a wider palette of sounds, adding strings and piano, to dive deeper into the sound bath of Johnsons meditative music.
"The Cinder Grove" is a profound, affecting statement on the nature of loss and irreplaceability as well as a major addition to the canon of Johnsons increasingly seminal work and has drawn praise from Pitchfork and The Guardian amongst others.
