Boomkat Product Review:
Forlorn, rustic, almost stately meditations from a real down-home voice and his six string
“The satisfaction of an unadorned room, a field without buildings. We hear austerity espoused in rhetoric, yet encounter it less in the flesh. The restraint required to forgo excessive overdubs or fussy arrangements. Don't throw it all against the wall then fix it in the mix. Just play the damn thing and have some big ears ready to react. Then walk away from it.
On Black Wind, songwriter/guitarist Wes Tirey makes the case for quality over quantity. After a stream of well-received cassettes, Tirey assembled a reserved trio and laid down the soft law on a single night in September. Whereas his previous releases were turned inward, Black Wind opens out like Malick meditating on prairie grass. The words and imagery are stark, broad strokes while the arrangements are spacious, simple structures of Tirey's voice and acoustic guitar, with sparse backing from a telecaster and a trap kit. Opener "All the Livelong Day" comes on like Karen Dalton dressed-down to parched bone, window-lit dust and old chairs, while the final and title track flutters in bursts, unfurling heavy-lidded at daybreak.”
