Of course he played in Lamchop and Silver Jews, but that’s not even really “that shit” when you’re talking about Willy T. When it comes to “that shit,” nothing tops his solo debut from a few years ago, Behold the Spirit. Beautiful, original, and true to its Tennessee roots, it should go without saying that our copy has gotten some heavy wear in its time. We were thrilled when he agreed to do a single with us, and we were beyond stoked when news broke that he had signed with Merge for his second album. You can only imagine how giddy we felt to finally hold a copy of Impossible Truth, William’s sophomore release when it came out on Tuesday. Willy says it’s his “’70s singer-songwriter record.” We say if you buy one record this month, let it be his. It’s also worth noting that William’s headed out next month to tour through the East coast and part of Canada. Check those dates after the jump, and pick up Impossible Truth here!
