Summer in the Southeast (2005)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Nov 15, 2005; Lead Performance: Will Oldham; Genre: Folk

Will Oldham is a prickly artist, able to conjure rare beauty but never making things too easy. So it is with the lo-fi, often fiery Summer in the Southeast, which draws out the rock in his eccentric, soulful Southern folk-rock, reenvisioning older material with a band just sloppy enough to make the magic seem magical — when they don't simply sound sloppy.
