Viking's Choice: Glenn Jones, 'Flower Turned Inside-Out'

By Lars Gotrich | NPR
Thursday, December 10, 2015

Glenn Jones' music is remarkably intimate: It feels so close, you'd swear you could reach out and touch the airwaves vibrating between strings. After a decade in which Jones has flown solo on the guitar, his sixth album Fleeting illuminates textures in his thoughtful and complex compositions, which leap from the speakers more than ever before.

Fleeting was made in a house on the banks of Rancocas Creek in Mount Holly, N.J., with recording engineer Laura Baird, but sans soundproofing — they just let the environs creak and chirp around the music. Hear the strings rattle and the room breathe in the meditative album-opener, "Flower Turned Inside-Out."

Fleeting comes out March 18, 2016 on Thrill Jockey.
