Will Johnson‘s name may be more familiar to you as the main guy behind the alt-country bands Centro-Matic and South San Gabriel and as drummer for Monsters Of Folk. He was also part of the fine 2009 LP Molina and Johnson with Jason Molina of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co.
Here’s his latest single ‘Cornelius’ which rings strongly with an organic and warm embrace of a sound, redolent of Iron & Wine in the vocal harmonies at least. It’s a ragged slow burner and a great hint of what’s to come on the new record.
Will Johnson’s 6th solo album Wire Mountain will be released via Keeled Scales on September 27, 2019. Available on bone-colored or classic black vinyl and on CD in an eco-digipak. Features Britton Beisenherz, Jon Dee Graham, Thor Harris, and Little Mazarn.
