From the album When I Was A Child, out 9/25 on Brick Lane Records.
Seattle-via-South Carolina singer-songwriter Austin Crane named his musical project Valley Maker after a Smog song, and he lists people like Will Oldham and Cat Power as influences. That should convey some of the rustic, sad-eyed folk sensibility he’s working with. On “Only Friend,” the first song from upcoming Valley Maker album When I Was A Child, Crane meditates on faith and his Southern upbringing over a constant ripple of acoustic guitar, gentle but insistent, while Amy Godwin lends his plaintive voice a ghostly echo. The video, directed by Joseph Kolean, matches the track’s sparse melancholy with a quick succession of shots of natural landscapes. -- Stereogum
