M. Ward: “A Wasteland Companion”
Another stellar M. Ward album
An interesting folk album from one of the leaders of the modern folk revival. This album is packed full of good tunes that anyone who enjoys modern indie folk would enjoy. This album is proof that Ward hasn’t lost a step after spending much of the past couple years working on sunshine pop tunes with actress Zooey Deschanel. Consider this album to be an early frontrunner for album of the year.
