Continuing in the vein of his self released home recordings, the upcoming album is a thing of quiet beauty reminiscent of the very best under-the-radar homegrown ’70s folk experiments. Those familiar with, and appreciative of, the resurgence in this brand of music take heed and keep your eye out for both this ’07 album as well as future Wingo projects. I have a feeling this is only the beginning.
Coincidentally Wingo has scored some of the films by one of my very favorite contemporary directors, David Gordon Green. Those interested in the subtle nuances of the present day American south would do themselves a great service investigating Green’s work.
