[WANDERER’S SONGS] James Apollo has one of the most fascinating Facebook pages. Adding a steady stream of globetrotting photos and a smattering of poetic, ambiguously important status updates, the frontman gives off the vibe of a wandering vagabond with occasional Internet access. This is all very fitting considering he wrote his band’s 2012 EP, Little War, Little Less, during an expedition to the Utah canyons, where he disappeared unbeknown to his family, friends and bandmates for a number of weeks. The album carries obvious ties to introspective and soul-searching songwriting, but with the production of Seattle staple Damien Jurado, it also finds a nice balance of accompanying instrumentation. From the driving opener “Blessed or Bust,” deep with woodwinds, horns, percussion, piano and guitar, to the whispering “A Suckers Spark,” composed mainly of piano, bass and backup vocals, James Apollo’s songs pleasingly mix his meandering musings with interesting compositions.
