If you’re going to be downbeat, glum, or morose, it’s best to do it the way Timothy Showalter does it. Which is, with an energy and purpose that doesn’t contradict the melancholy, but rather frames it as various stories — studies in seriousness. He records under the name Strand of Oaks, he writes and performs nearly all of the music on this new album himself. It’s titled Heal as in “healing a wound,” something Strand of Oaks frequently seems in need of.
