Steve Von Till - A life Unto Itself (2015)
You probably know Steve Von Till, singer / guitarist in Neurosis also releases solo accoustic albums (like Scott Kelly), last year's A Life Unto Itself is the latest one. It is a brilliant dark americana / folk album. Of course Steve Von Till is a good singer and composer and it also shows on this album, but what is also excellent is the viola parts from Eyving Kang and even more the pedal steel parts played by Jay Kardong. It really brings the songs a special feel. And no, it does not really sound "country music", but yes definitely american roots music. It's not "heavy" in the way Neurosis is heavy but the atmosphere is as deep and strong as it is quiet. The Bandcamp page.
