Willy Mason - 'Carry On'
Some nicely modern, processed touches to Willy's folk songsMore on Willy Mason
8 / 10 Willy Mason always just seems to be about – supporting Mumfords here, doing some strange little show there – but recordings-wise, he’s some way off being prolific: this third album is also his first for five years. Lord knows what takes him so long, but whatever he does is never less than great, and these 11 songs are no exception. Yes, the country-boy-voiced lines about “pickup trucks” on single ‘I Got Gold’ are gonna annoy the hell out of some people, but Mason’s team-up with producer Dan Carey has resulted in some nicely modern, processed touches to his folk songs, ‘Painted Glass’ being especially beautiful.
