Album Review
Luke
Reviewed 2009-05-01 
Live folk album, sparse instrumentation with just two guys producing an occasionally lush sound, mainly with acoustics. There are occasional bits of electric guitar and various forms of percussion thrown in, though most of the songs sound alike. Liner notes namedrop Nick Drake but the music is nothing like his, sounding more like your typical indie folk music with a good degree of Tim Buckley thrown in. Applause commonly bookends tracks; each instance is noted.
FCCs: none noted
Picks: 1, 6, 8

**1. (4:50, first 0:15 & last 0:13 live noise) Thoroughly excellent track, a mid-tempo, mostly acoustic song that builds up intensity as it goes. Quite dark sounding, play this one in the winter, at nighttime, or even if it's just too cloudy.
2. (4:07, last 0:18 noise) Run of the mill track, slow/mid-tempo, acoustic with electric backing; the Buckley connection is pretty obvious here.
3. (3:34) Somewhat upbeat, psych elements thrown in to accompany an alcohol-fueled tall tale. Interesting hooks make this one worth a listen.
4. (4:04, first 0:10 and last 0:27 noise) Midtempo, sounds like a stripped down Andrew Bird song.
5. (3:03) Straightforward, sounds a bit on edge with some great electric work thrown in; if you liked one of the highlights and are coming back for more, try this one.
*6. (3:38, first 0:08 and last 0:16 noise) Interesting bassline-esque rhythm guitar runs through this piece; lots of repetition but diverse music (connected with the bassline) makes it a success, maybe even catchy at times.
7. (2:40, last 0:13 noise) Very straightforward slow/midtempo folk sound, doesn't offer anything the others don't aside from being a bit shorter.
*8. (5:30, last 0:20 noise) Midtempo folk/pop, a bit repetitive but contains the closest thing this album has to hooks, not to mention a memorable title and some buildup. Could just as easily have been recorded in the late 60s/early 70s.
9. (3:13, last 0:42 noise) Weak track to close, just one more average folk song featuring fingerpicking, bird imagery before they leave the stage.
