Ehren Starks returns! "Cry Wolf" on Magnatune

Last year when I did my 100 favorite albums, I put Ehren Starks' The Depths of a Year at number 74. It had been 11 years since his last album, Lines Build Walls, and there were no signs of a third album in sight.

And then Cry Wolf dropped out of the sky unexpectedly. It was actually released in June of this year, but I hadn't caught wind of it until recently. I've given it a few good listens, and I do believe it's every bit as good as Depths.

It's really great, powerful instrumental music. It's not just background noise – it's worth, and rewards, sitting down and just listening. (A habit, I'm afraid, people have gotten out of.)

Go give it a listen, you'll be very happy you did.
