Recommended Album: Man Called War – Naked Animals
Rob Kelly’s DIY folk project, Man Called War, has the quality of a haunted hug. The soft edged composition of his latest album, Naked Animals (released on 3/24) – make it an easy approach, however, subtle arraignments reveal a complex painting – allowing you to drift into a soft blend of folk that has a distinctly New England feel. Veering between bummer folk & lonely woods there’s a sliver of hope throughout the album – like a brightly colored autumn leaf lying silently on a damp city sidewalk – and it’s this juxtaposition that make Naked Animals much more than just another singer-songwriter album.
