Can I have some sweet summery goodness please? Of course you can my good man. This album is a really intriguing listen. It has numerous elements which all add up to a folk classic. The songwriting is really strong, the musicianship is ace and the whole thing is presented in super sweet wooden packaging. These guys are obviously well talented, and well versed in wood craft. It starts gently, with nice vocal harmonies, then gradually progresses into a sort of folk opera, with loads of stuff happening, but in a really tasteful way. Its never too much as Luther Vandros capably put it. It reminds me of Beriut, in terms of the trumpet, but more folky. My favourite Tracks on this puppy are 'Samba Song' and the haunting 'Windowsill Smoke', both vastly different but kind of sum up where these dudes are... and that place is folking beautiful....
