On Wayfinder, the follow-up to the acclaimed 2019 album Free Company, Oakland-based songwriter
Taylor Vick, under her songwriting moniker Boy Scouts, chases down life's queries to the very edge of
the horizon. This is an album that's not afraid to track down what it all means -- how life unspools around
the monoliths of love and death, the heavy knots of even quotidian conflict, the task of carrying your own
suffering with you day after day, the challenge of meeting other people out here in the tangled expanse
of living. In a warm, expansive style that recalls the raw punctures of Lucinda Williams and Alex G, Vick
once again shows herself to be a fearless seeker shedding light on the unanswerable.
Vick's true superpower is her voice. Strands of slide guitar, organ, and strings ring under her affable, expressive voice, bolstering layers and layers of harmony. There is something so honest about her songs,
they feel like a late-night therapy session with your best friend.
