Your Daily Lick: Bob Harp

Collecting Dust (self-released)

The first thing that registers about Bob Harp's second album is how evocative it feels, how true it sounds - as if his guitar and harmonica really have collected dust for decades. The effect is but an illusion (he's a young guy; his songs are new), but the ploy is forgiven as his tunes speak for themselves. If not directly, they muse affectionately on America, folk, the country, and the West.
