8/10 Penrith Steve 14th November 2014
On his eponymous debut Harper Simon sounded a lot more like his dad (that’s Paul Simon, in case you were wondering) than he does here with the exception of “Just Like St. Teresa” and “Leaves of Golden Brown”. On “Division Street” he goes for a mid-fi-on-purpose sound, but it still has the melodic sensibilities that must be in his genes.
There are distorted drums and vocals but the songs are melodic and some of them rock a bit too, “Dixie Cleopatra” for example. “Veterans Parade” and the title track are two of the stand-outs. There are touches of Jeff Hanson "All To God" and a general Elliott Smithness to it all.
