I've been thrown an album by Micah Blue Smaldone called 'The Red River' and i'm really hangin' happily with it on first listen. 'A Guest' is of the tradition of that slow, cyclical confessional alt country led by a heavy hearted & yearning male vocal with some stunning cooing backing vocals from the femme's perspective. Bits of BPB, early Lambchop & Smog in there. I could buy the album for ...

9/10 Brian Staff review, 30 October 2008
I've been thrown an album by Micah Blue Smaldone called 'The Red River' and i'm really hangin' happily with it on first listen. 'A Guest' is of the tradition of that slow, cyclical confessional alt country led by a heavy hearted & yearning male vocal with some stunning cooing backing vocals from the femme's perspective. Bits of BPB, early Lambchop & Smog in there. I could buy the album for that one track, it's utterly great! 'The Clearing' is more like trad folk, really touching, 'Pale Light' appeals to the Tindersticks fan in me with lovely horns and a faint bluegrass feel, but it's more his voice being a couple of octaves higher and the gothic country lounge vibe that floors me. It sounds to me that every distinct style he embraces, it turns to gold. The other side begins with 'A Derelict', more lovely, passionately excecuted folk that keeps on meandering off into spectral James Blackshaw territory before he returns with a rousing, chest beating lyric. Later songs remind me more of Alasdair Roberts' sad eyed trad folk . I've not got the time to thoroughly peruse all 7 tracks but mark our words, this is one of the highest calibre albums of Americana/alt folk/country we've heard in a long while. Consider me a fan. LP/CD (vinyl with FREE DOWLOAD CODE!) on Immune.
