From M.C. Taylor: William Tyler’s new record, Goes West, is the best music that he s ever made. I m sure of this because I know and love all of his music intimately, and this album moves me the most, and the most consistently. The first time I heard it was in the late spring in the Texas Hill Country, rolling between limestone and scrub. I was on a cleanse then no alcohol, no drugs, no evil thoughts and was astonished at the emotional clarity that the album held. It offered up a model for what I wanted my head to feel like. Goes West marks a sort of narrowing of focus for William s music; it sounds as though he found a way to point himself directly towards the rich and bittersweet emotional center of his music without being distracted by side trips. Perhaps this is down to the fact that William only plays acoustic guitar on the album, a clear and conscious decision considering that he is one of Nashville s great electric guitarists. The band that performs Goes West alongside William including guitarists Meg Duffy and Bill Frisell, bassist and producer Brad Cook, keyboardist James Wallace, drummer Griffin Goldsmith, and engineer Tucker Martine is the best and most sympathetic group of players that William could have assembled to play these songs.
Review
By Matt Yuyitung, Published Jan 22, 2019; Score: 8
✹    There’s a lot that can be said about William Tyler’s abilities as a guitar player. He has a strong ear for catchy melodies with lasting power, remarkable technical chops, and an easygoing yet evocative composition style. He can make nearly an hour of solo guitar material compelling and immersive (as proven on 2013’s Impossible Dream), and Goes West shows Tyler at his relaxed but immersive best.
✹    Album opener “Alpine Star” is probably the best encapsulation of the record; it’s an ambitious track filled with twists and turns, and shows off the heavy influence of country and folk. It also contains some great guitar melodies on a record full of them. Tracks like “Call Me When I’m Breathing Again” and “Rebecca” are reminiscent of his solo guitar work, and closer “Our Lady of the Desert” pairs Tyler with accomplished guitarist Bill Frisell.
✹    It’s a collaboration that makes a lot of sense. Both players have eclectic catalogues; Frisell has covered territory in jazz, folk and country over his long career, and Tyler has travelled across indie groups, released solo guitar material, and wears his folk and country influence on his sleeve. They both have intricately nuanced yet very accessible songwriting styles, with catchy melodies balancing well with their guitar wizardry.
✹    There’s a lot going on in Tyler’s music, his compositions are constantly twisting and turning, they evolve before your eyes. His work is the type that rewards repeat listens, with new layers that constantly emerge, and new details waiting to be discovered. And yet, Tyler sounds like he’s barely breaking a sweat. It’s the sound of confidence in one’s abilities as an artist, one who embraces their restlessness and creativity while sounding like he’s barely breaking a sweat. (Merge)
