Stream Jonathan Wilson's Gentle Spirit, out in July

I'm a huge fan of Jonathan Wilson. The talented songwriter and guitarist has played with everyone from Jenny Lewis, Vetiver, Elvis Costello and the Jayhawks' Gary Louris to Robbie Robertson. I even dedicated an entire mixtape to Wilson and his famed jam sessions in Laurel Canyon. Now, according to Wilson's web site, the musician is finally set to officially release his elusive second album, Gentle Spirit—a record Tame Impala's Nick Allbrook dubbed "one of the best albums I've ever heard." You can now stream the record in its entirety below and snag it this July.
