After several albums of traditional, jazzy folk-rock, the Chicago-based singer-songwriter has found a more instinctive voice. The force driving these songs—from the exquisite slow burn of “Expired” to the instrumental guitar ramble “Rocks on Rainbow”—is an embrace of the unexpected. Over four solo albums in as many years, Chicago guitarist and singer-songwriter Ryley Walker has gone from Takoma-influenced finger-style guitarist to neo-British folk rocker to exploratory post-rock and now a sort of slowcore/post-rock/prog folk amalgamation. It’s almost like he’s making a conscious effort to have each album sound like the work of a distinct individual rather than the work of the same prolific songwriter.
