Christian Williams - songs from his new-ish album of gothic prairie music

Purveyor of the finest gothic prairie music (country is too generic, but prairie - now we're getting specific), Christian Williams was kind enough to send us some more of his songs from his new album called 'To the Trees'. He sent it quite a while back, and I've been mulling them over ever since. One guitar with his voice sounding like he could have had a career writing/being covered for/by Johnny Cash, the other a banjo led ditty which doesn't help with the GAS.

I've been listening to a lot of clawhammer just lately, but it drives the wife mad and so remains a private pleasure between me and my headphones.

Listen: Christian Williams - Lake Effect
Listen: Christian Williams - the Recluse Anna Brown

Official - you can stream the whole album from here.
