New Neil Halstead - "Paint A Face"

By theajaysharma

Neil Halstead, a founding member of Slowdive and the singer/main songwriter of Mojave 3, is releasing his sophomore solo record oh, mighty engine at the end of July on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records (the solo debut was on 4AD). Pairing with Johnson may seem strange, but when you take a closer listen to Halstead's gentle melodies and often naturalist lyrics, the overlap goes beyond both guys liking to surfing. For instance, "Paint A Face" from the forthcoming collection is akin to Kings of Convenience + Iron & Wine + Cornwall, England + a warm, slightly melancholic breeze. - Source
