Band of Horses fans already know guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Tyler Ramsey, but since 2005 (before joining BOH) he’s been releasing acoustic solo albums full of stripped-down, openhearted songs. In the same way artists like Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon) and The Tallest Man in the World infuse the singer/songwriter tradition with unique viewpoints, Ramsey makes the format feel fresh and evolving. He’s a fingerpicking wizard with a knack for crafting intensely effective melodies. “The Nightbird” was the first song written for The Valley Wind, and it sets the collection’s tone; it’s spare and haunting, yet brawny and bold enough to leave an impression on first listen. The title track is a lovely, lilting tune; Ramsey veers calmly into Neil Young territory with cascading melodies and scrappy quasi-falsetto. On the ethereal “All Night” and “1000 Blackbirds,” Ramsey goes for churchly harmonies HYPERLINK ""à la Fleet Foxes. Among the delights here is a fragile cover of the Cyndi Lauper hit “All Through the Night,” giving the song an entirely new face.
