Lovely to hear another track off of the upcoming solo LP from Matthew Rolin. “Fourth Street” moves through the sunlight like wind on grain, a gorgeous ramble of strings and serenity that speaks to Matthew’s talent. I’ve been loving the recent rivulet of fingerpicked folk that’s been bringing heart-stung positivity with it — William Tyler, Yasmin Williams, Cameron Knowler, Nathan Salsburg, Eli Winter — and now this captivating cut from Rolin. This tune was named for the street Rolin and Powers lived in Columbus, and while I know that they’ve been loving the move to more pastoral surroundings, this is a nice send off to that chapter of their work and life. The new album was recorded with Jeff Ziegler, giving it a bit of a more robust sound than some of his previous albums, but still anchored in Rolin’s dazzling fretwork. The record, Passing, is out October 14th from American Dreams.
