Bill Binkelman Review of Last Passing of Summer
This is acoustic guitarist Lindsay’s second release and it’s even better than his previous effort, Nightbound, which itself was an excellent album. Recorded at Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road Studio and featuring the “usual suspects” of guest musicians, Last Passing of Summer epitomizes the subgenre of autumnal soundscapes. Somber, intensely beautiful, reflective, yet infused with humanity and warmth, this would positively be in my rotation for drives through the country on late fall days. Each of the twelve tracks take a slightly different approach but the “whole” of the album defines the term “haunting beauty.” One of the best albums from 2018.
