Preston Lovinggood

Preston Livinggood was the singer and lead guitarist in a southern folk-ish, rock-ish band called Wild Sweet Orange, which made a late aughts run at major label success (whatever major label success was in 2008) recording on Sony imprint Canvasback and appearing, once, on the David Letterman show. I missed the Wild Sweet Orange phenomenon personally, but I'm liking Livinggood's new solo album a lot. It's stripped down but spike-y, with this cool, echoey production that makes Livinggood sound like he's right there next to you, but also maybe disembodied and spectral. The album is Sun Songs and it's out now on the Communicating Vessels label.
