8/10 Andy L Customer review, 30th January 2015
The Larimer siblings third LP has more of a flourish about it than earlier recordings, adding a touch of professionalism to the band's bouncy, sixties styled indiepop with dashing results. Heather's vocal contributions as ever steal the show, with single 'You're Alight' packing an emotional punch, the insistent repeated title and cascading pianos making for an album highlight. The excellent cover of Bruce Springsteen obscurity 'My Love Will Not Let You Down' is a stylistic tip of the hat on an album that feels like a distinctly American record, but not one that allows itself to get bogged down in notions of dull authenticity. Instead, it's Americana comes from it's mesh of traditional, unsynthetic instrumentation and romantic lyrical imagery, something that sweeps you up into a vision of fireflies and dirt roads on a warm evening. A fine record.
