A Fistful of Stars


Artist: Wyndham
Label: Fistful of Stars
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 12 April 2019

Wyndham Garnett is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer based in Los Angeles. He is an original member of Elvis Perkins in Dearland and Diamond Doves and a former touring member of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. His third solo record, A Fistful of Stars, sees Wyndham collaborating with celebrated producer/engineer Sean O'Brien. An avid enthusiast of 1970’s rock, it draws from influences like Kevin Ayers and J. J. Cale, and features performances by Omar Velasco (Jonathan Wilson, Amo Amo), Shane Mckillop (Gardens and Villa, Amo Amo), Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes), Matt Aveiro (Cold War Kids), Sean Walker (Delta Spirit), Zack Tenorio (Arc Iris)...

Wyndham's third solo album, A Fistful of Stars is a lovingly crafted, retro sounding collection of 7 songs (30 min, 03 sec), which dips its toes into folk, country and indie pop almost effortlessly. It's an album that you can instantly warm to from the first play though.

Its production values make it sound like it was recorded in the '70s, with each of the songs have a timeless quality to them. This has the added bonus of giving of waves of nostalgia to those of a certain age.

If I had one complaint, it's that it's far too short. It's halfway between an EP and an LP. Another couple of songs would have made this a much more attractive album.
