James Wallace’s new album as Skyway Man, Seen Comin’ From A Mighty Eye, was recorded at the famed Spacebomb Studios, the Richmond institution led by Matthew E. White and responsible for the orchestral pomp of Natalie Prass’ incredible debut album. You can hear the Spacebomb players’ signature sonic heft behind Wallace’s folk-soul compositions, which reach out towards the stars yet are distinctly of this earth, sounding like your feet sinking into the soil and crossing through into the cosmos. There’s a lot to dig into on this thing, from rumbling psychedelia to seismic Americana, yet it’s uniquely approachable through the sheer pleasantness of the arrangements. We premiered the spectral single “Creation // Someday” and its video last month, and now we present the entire album ahead of its official release this Friday. Listen below.
