Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens

Some artists treat their albums as opportunities to reinvent themselves, exploring new musical terrain at every turn. Others view each release as an iteration in the process of discovering their ideal musical space. Thankfully, Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens falls into the latter category. The territory he's been exploring as Morriconez and under his own name is hypnotic, beautiful and infrequently traveled. On The Holy Dogs of Other Days, he delivers another shimmering desert mirage of dusty Western psychedelia in six near-perfect songs. That's not to say that it's a retread of his past work, though; the record shows a newfound focus on rhythm and movement. It's still not dance music, but Stevens's newly discovered commitment to the motion in the music adds yet another dimension to his gorgeous signature sound.
