“New Multitudes”
Label: Rounder Records
Reviewed 4/23/13

Collaboration by Jay Farrar (Son Volt), Will Johnson (South San Gabriel), Yim Yames (My Morning Jacket) & Anders Parker (Gob Iron) on putting to music a collection of unrecorded lyrics written by folk legend Woody Guthrie. Lots to like here.


1 – (4:45) Hoping Machine* Jay Farrar. Moody, rhythmic, haunting vocals
2 – (3:40) Fly High* Anders Parker. Mid-tempo, pretty love song
3 – (4:45) My Revolutionary Mind Yim Yames. Plodding tempo, bare sound, just so-so, abrupt ending
4 – (3:59) V.D. City* Will Johnson. Rocker, harmonica, upbeat tempo. Long lead guitar solo ends song
5 – (2:58) Old L.A.* Mid-tempo rock treatment, paean to Los Angeles and love
6 – (3:59) Talking Empty Bed Blues* Yim Yames. Acoustic guitar intro transitions to duet. Slow tempo, closes on acoustic guitar
7 – (4:43) Chorine My Sheba Queen Will Johnson. Slow, dirge-like chorus singing
8 – (4:56) Careless Reckless Love Jay Farrar. Nice, sad, mid-tempo song
9 – (4:32) Angels Blues* Anders Parker. Slow, rocker, searing electric guitar in the background
10—(3:29) No Fear Will Johnson. Mid-tempo, just OK, repetitive, doesn’t go much of anywhere
11 – (3:42) Changing World Yim Yames. Song about changing the world, OK
12 – (2:42) New Multitudes* Jay Farrar. Slow, pretty song, beautiful vocal & harmonies
