Christopher Paul Stelling brings False Cities

With the occasion of summer, I have become distant. However, I have been enticed by Christopher Paul Stelling’s new album, False Cities. The album follows Stelling’s debut, Songs of Praise and Scorn, manifesting mildy dark acoustic strutting, murmurings of hell, and the cast of other psychically vacant lots. What does it all mean?
