Amazon will be selling The Wilderness as a digital download for just $5 throughout the month of June (USA customers only). The album has received some very nice reviews:
“…a gorgeous new album…” – NPR All Songs Considered
“Each word and note of this album feels so deeply percolated and thoughtfully placed
that it’s hard to believe that this is the fourth record the experienced Canadian altcountry band have released in 18 months.” – Daily Telegraph
“Consider this music a salve for the soul – restful, resigned, pretty and pensive… and yet as fragile as it is fleeting.” – Blurt
Also, please check out the complete Nomad Series box set if you haven’t already:
“Cowboy Junkies may never step out of the shadow of their seminal The Trinity Session recording, but there’s no reason the ambitious opus of the Nomad Series couldn’t otherwise serve as their masterwork.” – Paste
Nice. Sent a few to friends who most probably don’t listen to the Junkies often.
