On Monday Eric Braden, bka Old Bowl, posted Texas Mountain Laurel to his bandcamp. Sixteen tracks of Braden's signature bedroom psych-folk comprise the album. Last year's Innocent Sisters EP ranked on my favorite EPs of 2011, so I'm pretty excited to already have new Old Bowl jams to dig into. Braden has been working on Texas Mountain Laurel for nearly a year, and his emotional out pour along with the refined lo-fi sound show that it was well worth the time spent. Draw up a bath and fire up a bowl for a lazy listen to this beauty.
