M Ward’s HOLD TIME drops tomorrow, Feb. 17th.


And Josh Hurst has reviewed it. He says:

It’s an inspired recording, with little bits of magic in every song. It should come as no surprise that Ward– the musical architect behind last year’s sweet 60s throwback She & Him– can serve up something as tinged with nostalgia as this, but the echoes of the past that resonate through these tracks are precisely that– echoes, evocations, suggestions, not the album’s actual substance, and certainly not the full extent of Ward’s gifts. Now that his identity is no longer reduced to a pronoun, Ward fleshes out his music with greater complexity and more careful craft than ever before. And his greatest illusion of all, of course, is that he makes it all seem to very simple.
