Perhaps one of the most influential folk artists in the modern decades and one of the most prolific writers over the course of nearly 40 years, Douglas Pierce has been releasing music under the moniker Death in June. Containing some of his deepest philosophies yet, this lyric heavy record is the first major stepping stone into the acoustic years of Death in June. While featuring some collaborative artists, Douglas Pierce takes the helm of this ship and pushes forth the graceful album. Originally released in 1992, and seemingly solely responsible for the Neo-Folk genre, this breathy masterpiece does more with a handful of chords and samples than many can hope to do with every instrument at their hands.
