This is magical. No two ways about it. Delve deeply into an ethereal experience made orchestral with beautiful voices and layers of strings, horn, organ and percussion placed within some undefinable cinematic landscape. Dwight Smith presents poetry lovingly created with extraordinarily-placed sounds – unusual in the fact that the arrangements of these new songs cannot be stiflingly placed within one single genre.
Ghost Town Atlas, featuring a few familiar talents contributing to the songs, including Molly Burch, Emily Cross and Dan Duszynski, is a compellingly beautiful portrait with a distinctive voice reaching beyond any singular definition of folk. Join Smith for his album release show tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River, sharing the bill with Daphne Tunes and Food Group.
An outstanding bill all around. Doors at 9 p.m. Very recommended.
