8/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 April 2013

The R.G. Morrison is a lad from Totnes (home of the bickering fair!) who as well as singing in this very un-English sounding group, runs a label, a record shop and has a girlfriend...and all by the age of 25. I say un-English as this brand of gentle country-ish acoustic melancholy sounds like it has emerged out of some Southern American state not an English one.

Main track ‘Slumber’ sounds like The Court and Spark (later to sorta become Hiss Golden Messenger) or Songs: Ohia’s (RIP) unsurpassable ‘Didn’t It Rain’. The female vocals are particularly effective and echo the ones on ‘Didn’t It Rain’ or on Bonnie Prince Billy’s ‘The Letting Go’. Just when you’ve marked it down as an acoustic lilt he starts screaming. It’s unexpected and slightly disconcerting, he sounds not unlike Eddie Vedder. On the flip we get a nice warm piece of Brit Americana with lightly brushed drums which unfurls itself as slowly as I did this morning, attempting to untangle myself from my duvet.
