Who doesn’t like TW Walsh? Well if you don’t I’m not sure what to tell you really. For years we’ve heard his name thrown around, most notably when he joined Dave Bazan’s Pedro The Lion before striking out on his own projects. But this isn’t a history lesson.
After providing musical and production assistance for a number of artists (Sufjan Stevens, Crystal Skulls, Starflyer 59, etc.) he’s finally releasing his full-length follow-up to 2011’s Songs Of Pain And Leisure entitled Fruitless Research on Graveface Records on February 12, 2016. The first single released is “Young Rebels” which has that classic indie rock sound before it became corrupted by mainstream outlets. But is it good? Yeah, to say the least. Walsh can hold his own with the best of them and this track is the evidence.
