John Vanderslice just released White Wilderness, an orchestral folk album that he recorded in just three days. Go to Exclaim! to check out my review.

Here’s the lead track, “Sea Salt.” It begins as a straight-ahead folk rocker, with live-off-the-floor guitar and drums. It goes widescreen at the 40-second mark, when the strings suddenly enter and Vanderslice’s voice is swathed in reverb. It’s pretty stuff, and it comes across like a scrappier version of Beck‘s Sea Change.
