Heal from Strand of Oaks was released just 2 days ago, and it is all sorts of amazing. Showalter has always been revealing on past releases, but Heal is on a whole other level – you read the guy like he’s a book through the course of this album; the good, the bad, the sad. But there’s this moment in this tune, Shut In, where Showalter sings ““It’s not as bad as it seems/ We try/ In our own way/ To get better.”… and somehow, you just know it’s true.
