Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release from the renowned American singer/songwriter. Grass, Branch & Bone is Joyner's 13th proper album and a sonic departure from 2012's Ghosts. While that record was a collection of dark, dissonant songs confronting death and loss in the vein of Neil Young's Tonight's the Night, this one is sparse by comparison, running with the likes of other outcast aftermath albums like Dylan's John Wesley Harding, Gene Clark's White Light, David Blue's Stories, Jerry Jeff Walker's Five Years Gone, Townes Van Zandt's Our Mother the Mountain and Cohen's Recent Songs. It's a natural progression-after a funeral, one takes stock and reflect upon his or her own life. Grass, Branch & Bone is a song-cycle of short stories about time and memory, full of people the listener has known and even may have been.
