Spanish songwriter Unai Azkune returns to Ball of Wax with “Coming Home,” a stark, sublime folk mediation not unlike “Bálsamo de Tigre,” which appeared on Volume 34. Featuring only voice, acoustic guitar and some delay, “Coming Home” is spooky and timeless; the song seems as if it could have been recorded pretty anytime over the last 50 years. The sentiment of longing and loss is more suggested than explained, giving the song a nice, wistful sense of vagueness to balance the directness of the arrangement. A fine and welcome addition to the Ball of Wax collection.
