Reviewed 2012-02-27 
Mostly quiet, mid tempo indie folk. Damien Jurado has built a steady catalogue of music along that vein, showing a lot of restraint but rarely following an explicit song structure to keep things interesting. No FCCs. Recommended tracks: 5,6,9

1. 5:34 starts as spacious, mellow folk with vagabond electric guitar then starts wandering and getting atmospheric
2. 2:52 backing child harmonies kinda work, solid spacey folk
3. 3:43 soft acoustic guitar and vocals (and harmonies).
4. 4:00 laid back lounge vibe segues into something more cinematic
5. **4:32 slower song, with pleasant chorus that includes swirling sounds and a xylophone
6. **3:47 nice arrangement that includes subdued acoustic guitar, drums, finger snaps, and crooning harmonies.
7. 4:23 distant, spacey vibe at slow-mid pace
8. 2:32 emotive vocals with stronger alt-country influence
9. **2:51 quiet start, poppy mid tempo
10. 2:18 low key closer with familiar arrangement of acoustic & electric guitar & keys
