Will Johnson – El Capitan CD/LP (Keeled Scales)
Will Johnson’s new album El Capitan features Will on acoustic guitar with contributions from Britton, Thor Harris, and Lindsey Verrill of Little Mazarn. “These things started years ago at a friend’s dining room table in Oregon,” Will shares. “They built up on desert drives, in hotel bathrooms, in casino bars, and on trail runs. They mortared together into something sensible (to me) over time. Some songs are quite old, and some are pandemic-new. It feels like we’re at the mercy of nature now more than ever, and the quiet of this time seemed right enough to make this record. [A limited indie store exclusive colored vinyl pressing is available.]
