M. Ward
More Rain

M. Ward has produced a lot of excellent music over the years, as a solo artist, with Zooey Deschanel as She & Him, and with members of My Morning Jacket and Bright Eyes as Monsters of Folk. Some heritage eh? He consequently dives into Mo...view item »

M. Ward
A Wasteland Companion

So A Wasteland Companion, at least initially, seems determined to continue the ideal of Ward as a new classicist in American pop music, deconstructing the sounds of the past and re-imagining them in the present to create something fresh. Leading single "Primitive Girl" transports you into an exciting flurry of folk/pop/rock with dazzling piano, ...view item »

M. Ward
To Go Home

M. WARD has a new single out on 4AD called To Go Home. It's a CD single and limited double 7" job. The 1st time I'd heard him proper was when the Post War album came out a few months ago.

When someone invents the 45 minute album you can speed li...view item »

M. Ward
Transistor Radio

I had the good fortune of seeing M. Ward open for Neutral Milk Hotel last year. You only have to look at the man to know he commands a stage and probably possesses a deep, smokey voice so his rich performance that night immediately made me interested in checking out his work. 'Sweethearts On Parade' and 'One Life Away' show off his sweet and sof...view item »

M. Ward
Transfiguration Of Vincent

Throw the Velvet Underground's "Loaded", Tom Waits "Swordfish Trombones" a few old bakelite `78s and a dash of those sad-sweet memories (the ones that you love to recall and long to relive) into your kitchen aid mixer (or an audio mixer for that matter) and the result would be something similar to M Wards "Transfiguration of Vincent".
