Make Way For Love’ – Marlon Williams

 

 

This 11-track album is awash in post-midnight reverb and spilling over with the myopic despondency of heartbreak. In jettisoning the frequent forays into bluegrass and country that dominated his debut, Williams has honed in on his greatest strength, which is his commanding voice — it invokes names like Richard Hawley, Porter Wagoner, Chris Isaak, Lee Hazlewood, and Roy Orbison.
