Farmer’s Corner

Fire

If a tree writes a masterpiece in a forest but no one is around to hear it, is it still a masterpiece? What if a Wooden Wand writes a hundred of them? America's most underrated songwriter, James Jackson Toth, ploughs forth with Farmer's Corner, blessing us with nine more tracks of divinely remarkable alt-country-acid-folk. With more of a laid-back, romantic, and optimistic vibe than last year's sinister Blood Oaths of the New Blues, this latest addition to his unrivaled oeuvre shows no signs of Toth slowing down or petering out. His powers don't diminish and his voice just gets richer. In about a hundred years' time, the world will wake up to how great this guy is (or was). Like Van Gogh or something. (www.woodenwand.org)
