Josh Ritter 

So Runs the World Away (Pytheas)

Josh Ritter is a truly profound songwriter, but his broad toothy smile and chuckle beg not to be taken too seriously. Ritter possesses great storytelling skills, with a lyrical whimsy and musical versatility that (although rooted in Dylan, Cat Stevens and Van the Man idolatry) is constantly striving to bring greater breadth to his craft, which he does again on So Runs the World Away. Ritter continues to evolve as a complex but engaging artist, and even after five albums, we’re eager to see what his career brings next.
