Album Review
Mr. Tumnus
Reviewed 2015-08-15 
Alternative rock. Acoustic guitar, electronic humming, and a heavily washed-out voice. I have no idea why the voice is so washed-out; I found it aggravating how difficult the lyrics were to understand, particularly when they seem to be central to understanding some of the songs. With that having been said: a couple of the songs on here are really promising and definitely radio-ready. Give this a try if you like alt rock that feels a bit dramatic.

Recommended: 3, 2

1) “Intro” (0:43): Some horn playing, with deep groaning sounds underneath. Probably ignore this.
2) “Spiders Soul” (3:50): Ambling pace. Guitars and drum do most of the work here, but there are some cool electronic accents.
3) “Shallows” (4:10): Great ragged guitar picking at the beginning. Emphatic chorus is memorable. Nice.
4) “Rabbits” (3:20): Voice isn’t distorted here; much more natural. Whistling sounds. Really pared back compared to the previous track. Sort of bursts open at the two-minute mark.
5) “Thats the Way” (3:50): This seems a bit more like a ballad, but the lyrics are so difficult to understand that I can’t say I liked it that much. Some great moving chord changes though.
6) “Hold the Knife” (3:20): Pensive. “Hold the knife and cut me clear.” Calm.
