The lead single from Matt John Henderson‘s upcoming album Soul Season, “Lopsided Truth Sayer” hypnotizes with a meditative pull, infusing folk with eastern influence. Tabla plays a prominent role throughout, emitting a calming flickering amidst lush percussive additions, courtesy of the djembe. Henderson’s vocals maintain a consistent, serene quality throughout. The UK-based artist recalls the likes of George Harrison in the calming, psychedelic folk allure, aiming successfully to induce “the imagination in arresting ways.”
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.
