Brooklyn NY’s Timesbold delivers just what the review says: A backbone of the sad folk-country of Will Oldham/Palace/Bonnie Prince Billy with much more developed and varied instrumentation. Driven primarily by acoustic guitar and voice, most songs use banjo, piano, harmonica, cello, and lo-fi keyboards to enrich. Each song involves layering of a lot of instruments but never does it feel overdone or overproduced. Instead, it keeps each song refreshing with nice surprises when an instrument rises out of the mix. Still, the best parts are the poignant, intimate moments of guitar and quivering voice. Great! 4, 10, 2, 3.|
