9/10 Brian Staff review, 25 March 2010

Sam Amidon. He's a NY resident on Iceland's quite wonderful Bedroom Community. This is his 4th full length, his second for the Puffin munchers (old Sugarcubes media in-joke) The first song here is bloody astonishing. Like a dreamy blend of Bill Callahan & Jose Gonzalez, 'How Come That Blood ' mashes hypnotic trad folk elements, electronics & brief flourishes of icy strings to create this legshakingly lovely pastoral classic. Coming on like a more carefree Nick Drake backed by Max Richter on 'Way Go, Lily' his mellow, smoky voice is backed by the hermit-like Beth Orton (who guests on 3 other tracks!). I'm falling for this album big time, lovin' its rustic & graceful charms, its blend of heartfelt folk blues & tender orchestration. There's so much love gone into this record, like everything on the label there's a distinct essence of effortless classicism that wipes the floor with much of the competition. 'I See The Sign' is a total winner.
