2010 debut album from Why? multi-instrumentalist Josiah Wolf. Jet Lag offers up a rare achievement-a solo work with true legs of its own. Wolf's visual snapshots illustrate the wistfulness of a mundane moment and offer canny excavations of those poignancies that lie beneath the surface: tough triumphs, tougher truths, and outright failures. His lean poems are set to an autumnal mix of warm Folk and easy Psychedelia played out (by Wolf alone) on guitar, vibes, kalimba, Hammond organ, bells, bass, and drums, to name a few. The end result, a sort of Chamber Pop minus the showy sweeps-virtuosity without the virtuoso-makes Jet Lag as impressive in its subtle execution as it is a timeless, heartfelt listen.
