Rich with sounds and sentiment that signal that dusky patch of road between then and now. This is deeply atmospheric, empty-interstate stuff, replete with reflection, regret and loss that moves from midnight to dawn, sadness to elation, past to present with mid-tempo grace.
Like his broad and ambitious previous effort, Silos & Smokestacks, Dark Light is an album of highway ghosts and backstreet apparitions. Where Silos cruises the wide Midwestern expanses of Wagner’s youth — factories and farms, rest stops and roadside attractions — Dark Light drifts across his midlife, interior topography.
