Become My Blood

Buy this album on Bandcamp.

"Become My Blood" is a thoughtful, lovely collection of songs from a mature, accomplished writer and musician. For those familiar with Fire Mountain, the tasteful arrangements, and crafted songwriting will feel familiar, but the themes of recognizing and holding tight to the things that are solid, that truly matter in our lives, reach far beyond the fare of the standard indie rock record. Nuby’s production - and for this project, his contributions as a player - give the record a lush, spacious feel that continually reveals nuance and attention to detail. As with the work of Fire Mountain, the album is a standout that would be worthy of attention in the nation’s most vibrant music scenes, even coming from a collection of Wiregrass musicians who play mostly for themselves and their community.
