'Heal' is the third album from Philadelphia-based Strand of Oaks, AKA mopester Timothy Showalter. By definition, mopesters are raw, damaged goods, and Showalter's first two albums, Leave Ruin and Pope Kildragon, had their share of woebegone, poetic odes to failed romance and general malaise and despair. That said, the new album is a sonic reinvention of sorts.

'Heal' is the third album from Philadelphia-based Strand of Oaks, AKA mopester Timothy Showalter. By definition, mopesters are raw, damaged goods, and Showalter's first two albums, Leave Ruin and Pope Kildragon, had their share of woebegone, poetic odes to failed romance and general malaise and despair. That said, the new album is a sonic reinvention of sorts.

'Heal' takes it up a notch, both thematically and sonically. Showalter experienced what may have been a nervous breakdown in the fall of 2013, and he and his wife were involved in a nearly fatal head-on car collision at the end of the year. Those traumatic events prompted a round of cathartic songwriting that finds its release on 'Heal'. The songs are even more agonized, and more transparently autobiographical. And the delivery is decidedly noisier and more raucous. This is an album that rocks in all kinds of unexpected ways. Surprisingly, given Showalter's rather placid musical past, that's the music's strongest asset.
