Someone had to fill Songs Ohia's (Jason Molina) huge shoes. Singer songwriter with acoustic guitar and arranged embellishments bring to mind all the greats like Nick Drake, Will Oldham, Two Gallants, even a tad of Angels of Light. Forlorn themes, genuine, heartfelt stuff if a tad dark, intense lyrics. Don't miss the final, bonus track, a cover of Neil Young's "Helpless".|
