Album Stream: John Isaac Watters, 'Campanas'

John Isaac Watters, the folk/country crooner with grainy gravitas in his voice and a camp of incredibly talented musicians surrounding him, has released yet another collection of intimate and moving songs titled, ‘Campanas.’ His sincerity is always striking as he tenderly ushers you into the worlds he creates in each song. Standout single, “Outside the Bar in Winter,” features Watters' signature poetry and the ethereal backing vocals of Alex Rhodes, all building to a rousing movie moment chorus. The songs swing with the ease of a see-saw between dusty folk tunes and demented carnival stylings with New Orleans horn sections like those on “Ragman.” Watters reaches into every corner of alt-country, spooky folk, and indie rock to pull together his best effort to date. His storytelling shines with pristine production and a backing band worthy of the Opry. Stream the entire album on his bandcamp now. - Jacqueline Caruso
