Zach Winters – Monarch

If you’re keen on artists like Horse Feathers, Will Johnson, or David Bazan, then you might want to check out Zach Winters. He has a new album out. Monarch. The liner notes make it clear that Monarch refers to the butterfly, rather than the hereditary institution. Which is a relief. Anyway, it’s a sound that suits the (northern hemisphere) season, but without being icy or glacial. It’s a quiet, calm listen, but it’s backed by plenty of understated instrumentation and some really nice melodies. Highly recommended.

The album is free to download over at NoiseTrade, though it’d be nice to leave a tip.
