Released:
Label: Fat Possum Records
He may be best known as the lead guitarist for Band of Horses, but Tyler Ramsey is a powerful force on his own. His third release is a dusky batch of singer-songwriter fare with a touch of Neil Young's weary and melancholic disposition. An avian infatuation permeates The Valley Wind, from the finger-picking instrumental "Raven Shadow" to "1000 Black Birds" to "The Nightbird" that's to blame for his insomnia -- another recurring theme. Fitting, as much of Ramsey's melancholic folk captures that dark-hour feel when introspection is at its dimmest but most heightened state.
