8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 15th July 2015
"Hope" is an EP or mini album released in 1994, from the early part of Will Oldham's career. Its brief 18 minutes prove that quality and not quantity is the key to great music. "Agnes, Queen Of Sorrow" opens proceedings is typical of Oldham's sound. It has the refrain "If you wait another day" repeated as the song builds in a ramshackle yet beautiful way. "Winter Day" has the same ramshackle approach but is still quite lovely. The difference between this and later recordings seems to be that the performances are a little tighter on his later work. "Christmastime In The Mountains" is a very beautiful one minute and forty seconds. The band here features Liam Hayes (Plush), Sean O'hagan (Microdisney, Stereolab, High Llamas) and producer, drummer and Drag City director Rian Murphy.
