Thanks to Zach at the fantastic music blog We Listen For You for this really nice review of songs about love, songs about leaving on WLFY’s updated Best of 2011.

Mark Geary – Songs About Love, Songs About Leaving

I’ve been on a huge folk kick these last few years and I’m not sure how Mark Geary’s newest album Songs About Love, Songs About Leaving went unheard.  This is a spectacular folk record that marks what I’ve known for along time, Geary is one of the best singer/songwriters we have going right now.  If you have a soft spot for the softer folk, this is a required listen record.  With appearances by Glen Hansard and songs that shake the emotional core, this should have been a record in the same breath as a Bon Iver or the other lauded folk records of 2011.
