|Slaid Cleaves Ghost On The Car Radio Limited Vinyl LP
In the spring of 2016 Slaid Cleaves gave the signal to Austin, Texas, guitarist and producer "Scrappy" Jud Newcomb: let's make a record. While Cleaves printed out lyric sheets and made last minute edits, Newcomb deftly put together studio, engineer, and musicians to help create Ghost on the Car Radio, Cleaves' first collection of new songs since 2013's acclaimed Still Fighting the War. As befits the times we live in, there's a heavy dose of disappointment and disillusion here, but the album ultimately slips into a profound gratitude, as if to say, "Yeah, things are pretty bad out there. But there's still some good stuff if you know where to look."
