Fifth studio album release from Canadian Singer/Songwriter Dallas Green, who goes by City and Colour. I was absolutely blown away by this record. Incredible cover to cover. Soulful, melodic, heavy, beautiful. Play all of these songs. RIYL: Ray LaMontagne, Alabama Shakes, Death Cab, Bright Eyes.

1. (9:17) Woman – CRAZY start to this record, so pleasantly surprised. Heavy, soulful, sad, beautiful jam. So good.
2. (4:50) Northern Blues – Slightly faster paced, great melody, almost bluesy, but his voice is just amazing.

6. (2:59) Wasted Love – Uptempo, attitude filled, this one will get stuck in your head.
