EDITORS’ NOTES

Alejandro Rose-Garcia is as known for his one-man-band setup as he is dust-dappled songwriting that sits at the devil’s crossroads of blues, folk, country, and rock. On And the War Came, the intense sweetness, sorrow, and power of his vision are all the more enhanced by the presence of a full band. His duets with Esmé Patterson feel especially large, whether the pair are joyously haunting each other in “Dearly Departed” or lurking in the shadow of an old love on the creaky “Call It Heaven.”
