[QUIET-TIME ROCK] With his latest album, Walking in the Green Corn, Grant Lee Buffalo—namesake Grant Lee Phillips—mines his Native American roots in deeply personal meditations informed as much by his recent fatherhood as Mother Nature. Arrangements are lean and lovely, featuring little more than acoustic guitar and the troubadour’s honeyed voice, which he uses to contemplate life and its harvests. If the hyper-visual narratives of “Great Horned Owls,” “Black Horses in a Yellow Sky” and “Bound to This World” seem to skirt granola, Phillips’ restrained songwriting—at once stripped-down and lush—makes for modern-day spirituals minus the sap. Ever the mystic, when Phillips observes, “All the world’s a rattlesnake waiting to unwind/All the world needs setting straight in its crooked mind” he still holds out hope in the elemental struggle between worship and worry.
