The Longest Song Wiki

The second full length studio album by The Longest Johns, Between Wind and Water was released June 19, 2018 two years (almost to the day) after their last. It was recorded on or around April 14, 2018.

The album was reviewed by Fritz Balwit of Audiophile Audition. Of the album, Fritz said:

I have been enthralled at the purity of their folk music, a cappella[sic] prowess. Harmonies are well-wrought, voices of the most pleasing sonics, and a majestic bass supporting things from below who can rattle the floorboards. In the most recent release, a female member adds a honeyed mezzo to the mix.

The album features a number of arrangements of traditional folk songs and shanties, and concludes with JD reading a mock shipping forecast.
