Boomkat Product Review:
M.Ward's fifth album 'Post War' was a real sleeper hit around these parts last year, and his cover of troubled genius Daniel Johnston's incredible 'To Go Home' was a real stand out track. Now 4AD have given it the deluxe EP treatment and bolstered the original track with two exclusive recordings and a cover of Jimmie Dale Gilmore's 'Headed for a Fall'. Although the additional tracks are as great as you'd expect, it's the cover that has me really dribbling as it seems to feature half the music scene on guest duties. We've got Nels Cline (Wilco), Neko Case, Jim James (My Morning Jacket) among many others coming together for a giant muso-baiting love-in. Unsurprisingly it's worth the entry price for this track alone, and in typically lavish 4AD style we have the vinyl version presented on 2(!) 7"s in a glorious gatefold sleeve. Just buy it.
