Just about the last thing we’d ever ask for in Seattle is “More Rain” – unless of course that’s the name of the latest album by M. Ward. On his eight studio LP, the Portland based musician doesn’t let the Pacific Northwest’s soggy gloom get him down, and dares the clouds away with his initially doo-wop inspired batch of brightly energetic boot-stompers and swooning lullabies. Dry off with M. Ward and his backing band of PDX all-stars – Adam Selzer and Mike Coykendall swapping spots on guitar and drums, Scott McCaughey on bass, and Alia Farah on keys – for one of our very first recorded sessions in the new live room.

Today’s the day! The new album ‘More Rain’ is now available everywhere. Pick it up at your local record store or on iTunes:

Relying heavily on a folk-of-yesteryear sound, updated with his indie-rock tendencies, and hearty helpings of undeniable melodies, M. Ward has positioned himself as one of the brightest, well-received singer-songwriters out there today. Conor Oberst, Cat Power Sun, Beth Orton and Norah Jones have asked Ward to contribute his haunted vocals and ghostly guitar to their records.
