The Odd Willow Release Show
- DAY OF SHOW
“Sometimes you gotta let them go,” Big Brutus sings on the Appalachian-tinged song 'Louise' from his sophomore album, 'The Odd Willow', releasing on March 5th, 2017. There is the evidence of growth in these new songs, of acceptance, of unwithered passion. While acoustic guitar is still present, Sean has made more room for electric guitars, less angry than affirming. On 'Games for Nameless Things' and 'Bury Bone', Big Brutus presents his more hardened and scarred persona. These are undoubtedly fun songs, but they explore the residues of anger that remain no matter how much time has passed. 'The Odd Willow' finds the songwriter in new headspace, but still capable of producing gorgeous, endearing and emotional music. Whether good or bad, hope or loss, expansion or isolation, Big Brutus implores us to “carry it all back home.” It’s hard not to.
