M Ward - Think Of Spring (Translucent Orange Vinyl)
The conceit of "Think of Spring" is to filter the songs and strings from Billie Holiday's "Lady In Satin" through a single acoustic guitar using various alternate tunings and a minimal amount of textures and studio manipulation. Most of the songs were recorded on an analog Tascam four track. "Think of Spring" is inspired by Billie Holiday, Ray Ellis, J.J. Johnson, John Fahey and Robert Johnson. Proceeds from this record will benefit Inner-City Arts & Donors Choose via PLUS1 for Black Lives Fund." - M. Ward.
