'I’m drawing on the urgency of the moment' reflects Grant-Lee Phillips; that urgency inspired the headlong rush of his latest album Widdershins, in which Grant-Lee Phillips invests the insight, nuance, and wit that has distinguished his songcraft over the past three decades in a riveting dissection of today’s fraught social landscape.
Beneath the moment’s tumultuous veneer, Phillips uncovers resonances spanning centuries - patterns echoing from the present day to the distant past. Its twelve tracks were cut largely live in the studio with the sharp trio of Phillips (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Jerry Roe (drums), and Lex Price (bass) serving as messengers.
A now seasoned songwriter and performer, with more than two decades' experience as frontman of the acclaimed Grant Lee Buffalo and also as an accomplished solo artist, Phillips awakens comfort and hope by shining light into darker corners. By turns sardonic, provocative, and illuminating, Widdershins delivers its poetic truths through Phillips’s peerless melodic sensibilities, carefully balancing intensity and vulnerability.
