Portland’s M. Ward has charmed and entranced a steadily growing audience since his 1999 debut, and he spent a portion of 2008 basking in the quasi-spotlight with the success of She & Him, his musical pairing with Zooey Deschanel. "For Beginners” opens the set with subdued, Buddy Holly-influenced guitar strumming, a gentle undercurrent to Ward’s warm and gently rugged voice. This is a superb collection of songs, with gems like the languid cover of Don Gibson’s “Oh Lonesome Me,” where Ward duets with Lucinda Williams, and a woozy, late-night take on Holly’s “Rave On” with Deschanel helping out on vocals. Jason Lytle of Grandaddy shows up on “To Save Me,” a lush nod to ‘60s pop, and the spirit of Nick Lowe is palpable on tracks like the introspective, hazy title track and the playful “Stars of Leo.” With clever lyrics, a stand-up bass, guitars lovingly strummed and picked, and an ever-present cloak of reverb around Ward’s voice, Hold Time feels soothing, familiar, and altogether necessary. And just like the venerable Nick Lowe, it seems clear that M. Ward has a vast reserve of first-rate music that will keep him going a good long time.
