Derek Webb has pre-released his new album Ctrl for sale from his website.
This won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, from the early intonations of a shape note choir coupled with subdued yet soaring vocals Webb explores “one man’s desire for something he can’t have because it isn’t real, his journey pursuing it, and the costs of that journey.”
This is music to think along with, not hum along to.
There is a three song sampler from the album available for free at Noisetrade.
Ethereal and instrumentally spare, the album evokes Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, and above all, Webb.
Here’s an interesting, substantial and excellent review of Ctrl from Mockingbird.
