Album the first from Lean Year, the pairing of Emilie Rex and Rick Alverson. The two bring substantial individual histories into the project, giving these minimal songs a very real sense of emotional weight and lived experience. Well suited to fans of Low. Oh, and one of the songs is named after Elem Klimov’s Come And See, which is one of the greatest (and most horribly intense) films you could ever see. On Western Vinyl.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 19 October 2017

This is a lot more relaxing than listening to Phil bang on about his decorating issues over the sound of a malfunctioning printer. 

Unlike Phil, it’s quiet. They have all the right influences in place (Karen Dalton, Fred Neil and John Cale), but go about shushing them so we can hear ourselves think. Then it all falls into place. It's the new band from the guy from Spokane… and Spokane at that time was the new band from the guy from Drunk. Are you getting this? There will be a test later.

Here, alongside tiny-voiced vocalist Emilie Rex and a few others, he carries on exploring small music… and there’s no getting away from it. Like Low and Beach House but with chiming dulcimers, minute electronics and soft strum guitars, this is a varied treat of music for those times when the night is quiet and snow slowly brushes against the cabin. It never happens like that but you can imagine.
