The Lonely Wild - The Sun as it Comes
This entire album feels like a sonic explosion occurred in the middle of a Western. Quite a few songs start sparse, only to grow into something massive by the time it's over. There are times I can swear I'm listening to an updated take on a Morricone soundtrack.
This is the sound of the sky falling around two grizzled gunfighters.
This one didn't hit me immediately. It took me a few listens to really fall in love. But now I can't stop listening to it. At the end of the year, I'd be shocked if this didn't end up in my top 5 albums of the year.
Favorite track: "Buried in the Murder"
