What I Heard This Morning: Hush Arbors

As Hush Arbors, folk musician Keith Wood has found himself a nice and cozy spot with Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Dinosaur Jr.’s J. Mascis. His latest album, Yankee Reality, is out now on Moore’s Ecstatic Peace! label with Mascis acting as its producer. The album itself is a poppy mixture of psych-country and folk that focuses solely on storytelling and really sells his attention to melody.





Mascis also collaborates with Wood on “Day Before,” his raw and unmistakable six-string squeal cutting through the walls of acoustic guitar:

”Day Before”

May as well through some distortion in as well:

”The Devil Made You High”

Sincerely,
Letters From A Tapehead
