Like Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Home Again has been a screenshot in Notes on my phone for ages and today I finally got around to listening to it. Also like The Night Sweats, I can’t remember where I first heard the song I noted for later: Home Again. I couldn’t remember why either, until I started listening to it today. It sounds an awful lot like Ben Harper, who I’ve listened to a bunch in the past and really enjoyed. The rest of the album evokes a similar mood, although the rest of the songs sound less like Ben Harper.

I sort of felt about this album the way I did about Wilco – Schmilco: the individual songs mattered less than the overall tone. So while the songs were all good, I had a bit of a hard time appreciating this album today, because I wasn’t in the right state of mind for such a mellow album. When I listened to that Wilco album, it was at the end of a long weekend and I just wanted to chill out, so the tone of that album was perfect. This album had a similar tone, but when I listened to it I was not in a chill mood; I was trying to accomplish 3 different work things, while also doing laundry, packing for a trip, and ranting about politics in a group text chain.

I still recognized this album as being good, but I think if I were to revisit it when I was in a better mood for it, I think I would like it even more.
