Gregory Alan Isakov – This Empty Northern Hemisphere [ALBUM REVIEW]

Waking up on a couch at 6am is usually one of the roughest thing you can do after a night out but when your woken up by “if I go, I’m goin” which featured at the end of the new episode of Californication it aint such a bad way to wake.

South African born, Philadelphia raised & Colorado based Gregory Alan Isakov’s 4th album “This Empty Northern Hemisphere” which features “if I go, I’m goin” is sure to open his music up to a wider audience and too right. He has shared stages with Ani Difranco, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Calexico, Brandi Carlile and Fiona Apple.

His Songs are plush with glowing arrangements. String sections that compliment and never overpower the more folksy
instrumentation of delicate banjo and accordion and nylon sting guitars. Backed by Brandi Carlile on a handful of tunes he delivers melodies that warm the heart and embed his lyrics in your mind long after the record stops. recorded in many different locations. a closed down bookshop, his apartment, in studio and at Carlile’s house his loosely woven folk music is in the vein of Iron & Wine, acoustic Springsteen and I’m sure I could go on but to do that would make less of Gregory as an artist in his own right.

Here is a live version of album highlight Virginia May featuring Brandi Carlile.
