The Evening Call


Greg Brown
The Evening Call
(Red House)
Midwest folkie Brown is entering a Delta impressionist phase, where the overall impact of his sound outweighs the fine points. Astute observations on the mess in America are down, as if he wishes not to repeat himself. The focus is more on aging, kindness, rural life and the voice, like a bullfrog who enjoys whiskey. “Mighty Sweet Watermelon” wraps sleepy rhythms around a reminder to check in on the folks. “Kokomo” recounts adventures and disasters that all end with him headed back to the bland Indiana town, pronounced with relish. It’s a warm bath of a record, recommended for the back porch with a hound dog, beverage and anxieties to be rubbed away.
