Thomas Comerford has spent the last three years preparing for his second solo album, II, the follow up 2011's Archive + Spiral. The result is a thoughtful, introspective album filled folk and western sounds and themes. Most of the eight tracks are built from acoustic guitar and deep, rich vocals. The sound and style could be compared to Mike Johnson. Several tracks, "Silt and Dust", "Chrysalis", "Prefer Not To", and others, then build with twang and organic instrumentation into small southern symphonies. This is bedroom meets barroom but at times it swells into larger realms. This is most apparent in "Done and Done" with its lush full band sound.
II will be released by Strange Weather Records on June 10th.
Comerford recently released a video with the help of local animator Chris Sullivan for the track "Prefer Not To".
You can celebrate with Thomas at The Burlington Bar on June 12th with Mar Caribe and Angela James.
