JAMES ELKINGTON: WINTRES WOMA (PoB-034) OUT JUNE 30

 

Or support via:  Bandcamp  (LP/CD/digital) |  Other Options (LP/CD/digital/streaming) | Local Record Stores

 

Fans of Sals and Bonnie will likewise want to check out the brilliant forthcoming album by James Elkington.

Drawing from British folk, avant-rock, and jazz traditions alike, Wintres Woma—Old English for “the sound of winter”—is James’ debut solo record, but you’ve likely heard his masterful guitar playing and arranging, even if you didn’t realize it. He has toured as a band member, recorded, and/or collaborated with Jeff TweedyRichard ThompsonSteve GunnMichael ChapmanJoan ShelleyNathan Salsburg, and Tortoise, to name just a few of his many enthusiastic admirers. His assured album, recorded at Wilco’s Loft, is baroquely detailed and beautifully constructed, featuring both his baritone vocals and some of Chicago’s finest, including Tomeka Reid.

The Fader premiered the video for lead single “Make It Up,” (watch below), and NPR Music premiered the spooky, reeling “Wading the Vapors.”
