Timothy Showalter’s fourth album as Strand of Oaks, Heal, has all the hallmarks of a breakout release. Based on the lyrical depth, musical exploration, and ripping guitar solo from J Mascis on Goshen ’97, it deserves every bit of praise being heaped on it.

Strand of Oaks recently did a beautiful World Cafe set, which has been made available for free. In addition to the songs performed for David Dye, it includes the album version of Shut In, which we’ve been playing for a few weeks on WFPK.
