Burlap To Cashmere: ‘Freedom Souls’ album review

Past recording history may have been spotty, but Burlap To Cashmere is officially back with Freedom Souls, which lands somewhere in the stylistic middle of 1998’s rhythmically booming breakthrough Anybody Out There? and 2011’s more folksy self-titled follow-up. Though the production takes a more homespun approach than either of those slightly more slick collections, lyrically, Burlap to Cashmere ranks right up there with any spiritually thirsty troubadour from the ‘70s, crossed with cutting edge musicianship that ranges from inventive indie rock to ethnically-influenced jams.
