New Multitudes – “Hoping Machine”

New Multitudes is an album put out by Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker, and Yim Yames. These guys had been friends for a while and it was inevitable that they’d collaborate at some point. And here it is, an album of songs written and recorded using archived Woody Guthrie lyrics. The scope of what Guthrie wrote in his lifetime is becoming clear to me, and I’m so delighted we can experience these words after his death through other artists. This is the 4th or 5th Woody Guthrie project I’ve heard about in the past few years! This particular song from New Multitudes is really haunting and beautiful –
