Eric Johnson’s dusty, autumnal country-folk band ambles at a relaxed pace, easily distracted by passing scenery, faraway mountain ranges, pretty guitar riffs, sunlight shining on hay bales. His pungent falsetto, simultaneously gentle and anguished, projects a playful sweetness; it's the essential touch of weirdness that makes the music ache. With Joyero.
