"The First Time I Ran Away"
This teaser from Ward’s sixth LP indulges in atmospherics so deeply that he nearly dissolves in them, lapsing into ethereal oohs and a murmured incantation about a waterfall. Ward sheds his old-bluesman tics for a soul-folk croon – and the guitars, as usual, are sublime.
