FIRST LISTEN: ‘God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise’ by Ray LaMontagne (RCA/14th Floor Recs)

God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise

The album (released yesterday) is Ray LaMontagne’s fourth album.

NPR writes of the album “Whereas 2008’s Gossip in the Grain was a more expansive release, God Willin’ exists in a more compact musical space. As the album’s title suggests, it’s a country-tinged record complete with slide guitar and the occasional banjo. The songs conjure images of a simple life of hammock naps and skillet-cooked breakfasts within a universe devoid of cell phones, laptops and televisions.”
