This track stopped me in my tracks when I heard it recently. Sparse and wracked with honesty and grim reality, Tyler Allgood reflects on the pain and experience of being homeless and addicted. The percussive tension of his guitar playing is a perfect match for the anguish in his voice and the disarming clarity of the images he sets forth in the song.
This track is a live standalone studio track at this stage, recorded at Revelry Studios in New Hampshire. It’ll be interesting to see whether it’ll make an appearance as a recorded track on his next full length release. Earlier this year he released his second album, Through The Empty, which showcased his swirling and evocative folk-rock.
