February 2016 has been a good month for new music. Several of my personal favourites have released new music. North Carolinian Jeremy Squires is one of them. I become a big fan a couple of years back when his Central Nervous Station EP and When Will You Go album combo won my heart over. His new album Shadows came out last friday on Shaker Steps that has expanded into a little label. Previously I’ve seen them provide some excellent music videos and Doc is obviously a great tunesmith himself as well.
Shadows is fragile, dark and beautiful folk album that isn’t afraid to deal with difficult personal issues. Listening to it might hurt for a while, but it won’t let those gloomy shadows drag me down. There’s also a certain almost unexplainable gentle warm humanity present even during the darkest of moments and in the end that’s what stays with me overshadowing the melancholy. This is Your Love from the new Jeremy Squires album Shadows.
