Cowboy Junkies – The Nomad Series Volume 4: The Wilderness (Latent Recordings)

It is an immense shame that Cowboy Junkies have not found the commercial success that greeted their 1992 album The Trinity Sessions. If anything, they have been one of the most consistent and reliable bands for folk-infused rock on this side of the 49th parallel. Their newest record The Wilderness only gets better with repeated listens with vocalist Margo Timmins’ plaintive voice giving the record’s occasional minimalist song arrangements a depth that is not easily replicated.
