Anomoanon – “Joji ” – [Temporary Residence Ltd.]
LP released in 2004 from this exceptional country-rock inspired project led by singer-songwriter Ned Oldham, younger brother of Will (Bonny Prince Billy). Nostalgic rustic warmth flows freely throughout with elements of Harvest-era Neil Young right down to the rich woodsy guitar tones carried on Oldham’s syrupy sweet vocals that seem to drip right out of a tapped maple spigot. The delivery and songwriting/arrangements have a fresh and sincere edge with a sense of place in the rural Kentucky hills from which they hail. To the uninitiated this could easily be mistaken as a lost 70’s rock classic. Gold sounds revisited.
