Henry Wolfe (no relation to Chelsea Wolfe) is a troubadour based in Eagle Rock with strong ties to the Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros collective. His recently released sophomore album, Asilomar (Spanish for “asylum by the sea”), was produced by Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Devendra Banhart) and named after a surf break on the central coast. Wolfe claims its lyrics address “the meaning of romance, the nature of loss, and the fear and thrill of the unknown” and its sonic ambience reflects this well with a solemn blend of gentle guitar strums, soft piano parts, and a reliably soothing voice such as on “Surfer Girl”:
“I want a summer that will never end.”
And here’s the song’s collage-fused music video edited by Caitlin Gutenburger (of Two Sheds).
Henry Wolfe‘s record release show is tomorrow (September 3rd) at Ruby Street Church. RSVP required.
