If you didn’t know, Johns produced the last Laura Marling and Ryan Adams LPs. Now he’s roped both in on backing vocals for his solo venture, ensuring more than eight people take notice. Good thing, too, as it’s a deftly woven folk tale in the Bert Jansch/Meic Stevens mould that deserves the attention you’re now going to give it.
