Letting go of the Wooden Wand handle (at least for now), James Jackson Toth’s solo debut, Waiting In Vain, steers clear of the psychedelic folk jams of his former outfit in favor of fairly straight-ahead, soul-infused, roots rock. The trick is that in doing so, Toth has crafted his best, most concise, work to do date. Oh, and don’t worry, Lexie is still on the team — her vocals fingerprints are all over this record. Also, unlike Wooden Wand, the LP is being released via Rykodisc and not Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label. Here are a couple below from an album that genuinely just keeps getting better with every repeat spin.
