Bill Fay returns with the third album in the celebrated second
phase of his recording career. A prime Fay song is a deceptively
simple thing which carries more emotional weight than its
concision and brevity might imply. There are ten of these musical
haikus on Countless Branches, as pointed and as poignant as
anything he’s ever recorded.

For decades now - it’s almost 50 years since he cut his classic
albums “Bill Fay” and “Time of the Last Persecution” - songs like
these have been Fay’s ambassadors helping rave reviews and
endorsements from the likes of Jim O’Rourke (Tortoise) and
Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) which led to a huge revival of interest in his
music. He had continued to make music almost every day in the
intervening decades. For Countless Branches he’s completed
new toplines over some of his cache of backing tracks, most of
them 20 to 40 years old.
