Just last week I was discussing how long we've gone without anything new from Spirit Family Reunion. Back in November 2016 we had a charity single, but it's been almost three years since the release of the fantastic Hands Together. Well, I think they might have heard me since yesterday marked the release of Solo Recordings. Back in the fall, Spirit Family Reunion singer Nick Panken embarked on a solo tour with Ian Felice of The Felice Brothers. On the heels of that, he's released a six song EP of solo recordings. While Solo Recordings is much more somber and less of a joyous celebration than your typical output from Spirit Family Reunion, it is still a collection of beautiful and thoughtful acoustic songs that will be loved by any fan of Spirit Family Reunion.
You can listen to my personal favorite song on Solo Recordings, "In the Manner That it Came," below. Solo Recordings is available now via Bandcamp. Spirit Family Reunion have one show coming up at The Ashokan Center in Stone Ridge, NY. For more on the band, check out their website.
