Holy shit. Is it too soon to start a short list for the best albums of the year? I hope not, because Kyle Craft’s new album is…Phenomenal. Yeah, you can hear a lot of Ryan Adams–and if you look too quick at the album cover, you’ll swear you see him, too. But there’s also a lot of other wonderful influences here: Bob Dylan. David Bowie. He’s standing on the shoulders of giants, and the power of his lyrics, his melodies, his heartbreak and honesty and fury, prove his reach meets his grasp.
If you don’t like this album, you’re an idiot. Seriously. Check it out–it’s only ten bucks on Bandcamp. You can thank me later.
