Rising alt folk artist Faye Webster has dropped a new single called “Both All the Time”. Coming as part of the Adult Swim Singles series, i’s a slow, simple song that confronts loneliness the way Webster does best.
Musically, “Both All the Time” takes its time, letting Webster strum her guitar gently with spacious keys behind her. Occasionally, a triangle note or saxophone melody chimes in, but for the most part it’s just her singing solemnly to a gentle beat. “There’s a difference between lonely and lonesome,” she sings, “but I’m both all the time.” If that doesn’t hit home for the sad folks, then I don’t know what will.
The track arrives on the heels of Webster’s excellent new album, Atlanta Millionaires Club, already one of our favorite albums of the year. Loaded with pedal steel and country twinge as it takes us through a comedic, intimate world of self-depreciation, the excellent effort also features one of the best songs of 2019 (so far), “Kingston”.
