Format: Audio CD
Strand of Oaks is the project by songwriter/musician Tim Showalter which has to date tended to be positioned in that category of sensitive folk rock alongside peers like Bon Iver and Iron & Wine. For this new album "Heal" it appears that Showalter has been eating raw meat since this is firmly a a rock record and often a very hard rock record. The presence of J Mascis one of the greatest guitarists plugging into an amplifier on the opening track on "Goshen 97" tells a story in its own right. It is s thumping pile driving song with hooks to spare where Showalter declares "I found my dad's old tape machine/ That's where the magic began". The track sets the tone for a noisy and often brilliant album.

Other tracks of note include the edgy title track with its War on Drugs overtones and (bless his heart) an epic tribute to Jason Molina of Songs: Ohia entitled "JM", stretching over seven glorious minutes and ending with a guitar wig out not heard since "Cortez the Killer". Charting the difference on "Heal" between this unabashed rock approach and previous acoustic based records is nowhere more pronounced on the excellent "For Me" which has hints of the Smashing Pumpkins in its construction. Equally the "Same Emotions" sees him introduce synths and push into that territory which could actually produce a hit single. Finally the more sensitive side of Showalter returns on the final track "Wait for love" where he stretches out into a an expansive piano ballad which eventually breaks out to showers of bubbling synths and great vocals (a feature throughout the whole album).

"Heal" is really a significant shift from anything Showalter has previously done.

I bought this after hearing the single, Goshen '97, on the radio. The J Mascis guitar brought me in, but the song-writing made me stay!

I love this album - have played it lots. Was initially tempted in by the great MP3 price but it has wormed its way onto my most listened to list.
