Though a Simon And Garfunkel reunion is never going to happen, Paul Simon graced us with the announcement of a new album and tour back in February. The folk-rock legend has already given us “Wristband” and “Cool Papa Bell,” and both of those are stellar. His latest offering is “The Werewolf.” Warped banjo, hand claps, and intricate down-home percussion are interjected with peculiar, inventive bursts. Simon soulfully warns of a werewolf’s impending approach with some vivid storytelling and irresistible melodies. It’s amazing how he manages to continually evolve his sound after almost 50 years of making music. Listen.
