To Go Home [Merge]

To Go Home [Merge]

by M. Ward
     
 
This excellent four-song EP adds more fuel to the suspicion that M. Ward is one of the smartest, most talented, and most appealing singer/songwriters of the early 2000s. The title cut is the feature, a revamped, near-majestic reading of Daniel Johnston's "To Go Home," featuring alt country royalty Neko Case.

Overview

This excellent four-song EP adds more fuel to the suspicion that M. Ward is one of the smartest, most talented, and most appealing singer/songwriters of the early 2000s. The title cut is the feature, a revamped, near-majestic reading of Daniel Johnston's "To Go Home," featuring alt country royalty Neko Case. The album's other tracks -- the lazy country honk of "Cosmopolitan Pap," the hazy, melancholic piano ballad of "Human Punching Bag," and a cover of Jimmy Dale Gilmore's "Headed for a Fall" (also featuring Case) -- are equally wonderful. A worthy purchase for fans and newcomers alike, To Go Home is a little gem of an EP.
