Will Stratton is in the habit of releasing music for free, so it comes as no surprise that he’s giving away a couple from his new album, No Wonder. The lyrics aren’t anything special, with nary an inspired image between the two songs, the kind of interchangeable ruminations that do nothing to distinguish him from any number of other songwriters, but they are inoffensive and pleasant enough, and the heavy bow of dissonance in “Your California Sky” gets him a pass.
