    Chicago-based songwriter Ryley Walker makes music that feels like it’s from another time: earthy, pastoral, and gorgeous ’60s-inspired folk a la Tim Buckley, Nick Drake, and John Fahey. On March 31st, he’ll release his sophomore album, Primrose Green, via his new label Dead Oceans, an LP that features a backing band of “both jaded veterans of the post-rock and jazz mini-circuits together with a few eager, open-eared youths.”

    As a first taste of the effort, Walker’s released its title track. It’s breezy and ornate, full of surprisingly mature twists and songwriting chops from the 24-year-old folkie. Listen in below.

    Primrose Green Tracklist:
    01. Primrose Green
    02. Summer Dress
    03. Same Minds
    04. Griffiths Bucks Blues
    05. Love Can Be Cruel
