BROEMEL, CARL - WISHED OUT$21.98
Vinyl LP pressing. Years before Carl Broemel joined My Morning Jacket - the Grammy-nominated, globetrotting rock band featuring his guitar playing, saxophone solos, harmony singing, pedal steel riffs, and songwriting support - he wrote his very first songs in his Indiana bedroom. From the start, he was a multi-instrumentalist with a singer's gift for melody. A sideman capable of handling a frontman's job. As his guitar-playing career blossomed, Broemel continued writing songs of his own, carving out a personal, introspective sound that reached beyond My Morning Jacket's sonic landscape. With his third solo album, Wished Out, he merges articulate, pensive songwriting - including ruminations about science, love, the passing of time, and the grind of the artistic struggle - with some of the most energetic, rock-inspired songs to date.
