as one third of the daredevil christopher wright, jonathan sunde helped craft memorable contributions to eau claire’s rich tradition of folk music. now he’s striking out on his own under the stage name j.e. sunde, and is set to drop his debut album, shapes that kiss the lips of god, on july 15th via cartouche records. although the album’s release is still a few weeks away, you can stream its lead single “easy kid” below, courtesy of cartouche’s soundcloud page. this is another wisconsin record not to miss out on.
