8/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 March 2012

Is there a mid-point between Jeffrey Lewis and Will Oldham? If there is then this guy surely inhabits it.  He has that sorta nerdy narrative style of Mr Lewis at times but seems to be more at home singing about rivers and rural back porch worries than city and social anxiety.  It's a simple record, just guitar and vocals throughout (having just said that some banjo pops up - typical!) and is recorded in a very homespun style - presumably just one tape recorder plonked on a table somewhere. Yet because of the narrative and because of the lovely rural feel it works as a nice mood piece. At times completely desolate, at others he perks up a bit but this is real modern blues, a man pouring his heart out into a tape recorder disregarding any kind of emphasis on style...it doesn't 'do', it just 'is'!
